Kamehameha-Punahou volleyball is often classic. Not porcelain-pretty classic. Not feng shui-perfect classic. Forget that. When the Warriors and Buffanblu lock horns, things get intense instantly. Doesn’t matter if one team is ranked No. 1 (Punahou) and the other is No. 2 (Kamehameha). Or if one is ranked nationally (Punahou).
No, it’s just captivating. I don’t see much college volleyball, but the level of heat in this match was high. There are times during a regular season when you know you’ve seen a level of play that beats most state-tournament competition. This was one.
