Rainbow Wahine battle the Washington Huskies

After starting off the season in unlikely fashion, the UH Wahine volleyball squad turned it around with impressive victories last week.

Along the way, the No. 6 University of Hawai`i Rainbow Wahine (5-3) won the Waikiki Beach Marriott Volleyball Challenge and will now host the second-ranked Washington Huskies at the Stan Sheriff Center on Friday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 17, at 6 p.m.

Television Coverage

KFVE (Channel 5) will televise Friday’s match this week, with Jim Leahey (play-by-play) and Chris McLachlin (color commentary) handling the broadcast. Saturday’s match will be shown live on pay-per-view through Oceanic cable, then showed delayed on KFVE on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 10 a.m.

Monday Afternoon Football?

You’ll get a chance to see two instead of one Monday NFL game, thanks to KITV-4 Island Television, who announced yesterday that they will broadcast the New Orleans/N.Y. Giants game live on Monday, September 19, beginning at 1:30 p.m. (HST). ABC is broadcasting that game as a part of the Katrina Relief efforts. The game begins at 7:30 p.m. (EST).

While the rest of the ABC stations across the country will hand the game off to ESPN at 3 p.m. (HST), KITV has received permission to continue to the feed until the end of the game.

By getting permission from ABC to air the entire Saints/Giants game, football fans in Hawai’i get the special bonus of seeing both games on broadcast television. The Washington/Dallas game will be tapedelayed until 6:30 p.m.
