As the Arizona volleyball team gets set for its Sweet 16 showdown against 8th ranked Washington, Arizona senior setter Penina Snuka is getting high praise from her uncle (who happens to be Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the famous actor pro wrestler).

He recently re-tweeted a picture of Snuka from the Arizona Volleyball account and added, "Very proud of our ohana! She's killin' it. #Pac12 #Arizona Volleyball #Snuka".

In Hawaiin, "ohana" is a term often referred to as "family".  

Here's more with Snuka and her "shout out" from "The Rock" as-seen-on KVOA Sportscast.

    With "Will & Grace" returning to NBC after an 11-year hiatus, it's only natural to wonder if "Seinfeld," which aired from 1989 to 1998, will make a comeback, too. Think again.
