Hey all, I wanted to give the Hawaii hoops fans a heads up on a new level of coverage from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser for all UH sports. We’re going to launch the new Hawaii Warrior World on Sunday. I hope everybody likes the new web page. I think it has a lot of potential. You’llREAD MORE

Enos' silent productivity

August 1st, 2014

You get your fair share of trash talking and complaining about calls in the College Summer League — and that’s just from the coaches. Players generally have more leeway with the referees than you’d see in a Division I game, and guys tend to take full advantage of it, pleading their case on every callREAD MORE

Burgeoning respect

July 30th, 2014

Tuesday’s docket in the College Summer League offered hoops watchers a chance for the two most productive Hawaii players in the competition, Isaac Fleming and Michael Thomas, to go head to head. Fleming and the more veteran Clark Hatch Fitness team got the better of this contest, and it wasn’t close, 136-93 over National FireREAD MORE

Thomas keeps it rolling

July 27th, 2014

The emergence of Michael Thomas is fast becoming the best Hawaii-related storyline at this year’s College Summer League. He’s getting it done on both ends, even in a loss for his National Fire Protection team on Saturday night. “What?” you say. Michael Thomas, two-way force? After last season’s relative no-show, that might give even theREAD MORE

Cold War

July 25th, 2014

The most interesting aspect of Thursday’s games at the College Summer League, besides another strong effort from Michael Thomas, was a matchup of two of the best big men in the league — former Hawaii players Bill Amis and Christian Standhardinger. It turned into the kind of physical, defensive battle that’s more common in anREAD MORE

Breakout night

July 23rd, 2014

Well, that’s more like it. Hawaii basketball’s representatives in the College Summer League finally had an honest-to-goodness explosive night as a collective group on Tuesday. First, Michael Thomas reintroduced himself to local hoops fans in a big way. Thomas played like a new man in his debut for National Fire Protection — not the seldom-usedREAD MORE

Old PGs go to work

July 20th, 2014

  Amid some commotion about whether Hawaii freshman guard Isaac Fleming would be able to play in the College Summer League on Saturday, two former Rainbow Warriors floor generals stepped to the forefront for one evening. Fleming shook off the hit on a pick he took on Thursday, contributing seven points and three assists forREAD MORE

Can't catch a break

July 18th, 2014

Isaac Fleming’s first game in the College Summer League was a frustrating experience. His second was a painful one. The incoming Hawaii freshman got some meaningful playing time for Clark Hatch Fitness on Thursday night, in contrast to some sparse minutes in his debut. He even got to go head to head against UH teammateREAD MORE

Senque very much

July 15th, 2014

After weeks of rumors and speculation about his status with Hawaii, former Loyola Marymount and Fresno State assistant Senque Carey became a Rainbow Warriors assistant coach on Tuesday. Carey did not have direct experience as a coach with any member of the UH staff, but had mutual contacts through his eight years on the coachingREAD MORE

Fleming's first taste

July 13th, 2014

From any perspective, Isaac Fleming’s first action in the College Summer League left something to be desired. From Fleming’s point of view, more minutes on the court for Clark Hatch Fitness. For the spectators in the old Manoa Valley gym, sharper play out of the new Hawaii guard that some surely came to see specifically.READ MORE
