What to know: There was plenty for fans to talk about last season when No. 1 Hawai’i played No. 6 Ball State. Whether it was Ball State defeating an injury-plagued Hawai’i squad twice during the regular season or the Rainbow Warriors rallying to beat the Cardinals in five games in the NCAA Tournament semifinals, these match-ups were full of intrigue. The teams one year later will now renew the emerging rivalry to start the season. The two-time defending NCAA champions Hawai’i will play host to Ball State in a two-match non-conference series. The Rainbow Warriors return four All-American starters from their championship team, including All-American setter Jakob Thelle. Thelle ended last season guiding the Rainbow Warriors to the nation’s fifth-best attack percentage at .340. The finalist for the Lloy Ball Award and National Server of the Year also led the nation with a 0.59 aces per game average, including having four aces in the NCAA Tournament semifinals against Ball State. Opposite Dimitrios Mouchilas and outside attacker Spyros Chakas each had a team-high 19 kills in that semifinals win. In addition, both pin hitters were in the top 10 of the Big West averaging more than a 3.25 kills per game and more than a .300 attack percentage. Ball State enters the 2023 season with a new starting setter following the graduation of All-American Quinn Isaacson. Senior setter David Flores was named a team captain and received playing time during the preseason. Second-year head coach Donan Cruz also added freshmen setters Griffin Satterfield and Jakub Wiercinski to the roster for the upcoming season. Among the returning starters for the Cardinals includes All-American outside attacker Kaleb Jenness. Jenness was second in the nation with a 4.65 kills per game average last season en route to being named the 2022 MIVA Player of the Year. Ball State in 2022 ended a 20-year championship drought as it won the MIVA championship and reached the NCAA Tournament semifinals for the first time since 2002.
