October 16th, 2016 – 17th ranked Hawai`i entered a Sunday match against UC Davis to close out the halfway mark of Big West Conference play. To close out UH’s festivities of Homecoming Week, the Rainbow Wahine notched their 10th 3-0 victory of the season. A 25-16, 25-11, 25-15 victory upped UH’s record to 14-5 overall, 7-1 in Big West play. Nikki Taylor and McKenna Granato each recorded nine kills, while Taylor led the Manoa Roofing Company with eight blocks. UH hit .325 for the night but it was the Rainbow Wahine defense that shined on that night in Manoa. The Bows outblocked the Aggies 12-2 and outdug the visitors 38-25. The Aggies offense never got going as UH held UCD to a -.040 hitting percentage. It was the fourth time in the eight BWC matches played to that date that UH had held their conference opponent to a negative hitting percentage.
