Bullet Game keys -- The Wahine need to improve on what they did against Western Kentucky last Sunday. "We made some mistakes on offense and defense and we've worked on those things in practice," UH head coach Vince Goo said ... It's still early in the season, so the Wahine coaches are more focused on their own players. Goo was pleased with how the Wahine adjusted on defense against Western Kentucky. "The players adapted well. From the veterans to the young ones, it was nice to see," Goo said.
