Fans of the annual NCAA Summer League at the Manoa District Park are in for a treat this year. The Hawaii men's basketball team's participation is heavy with at least one current player on each of the six teams' rosters. Not everybody on the 2011-12 team is in, but it's most of them. There are also several former Rainbow Warriors of recent vintage, including Julian Sensley, Bobby Nash and others.
The league starts up on Thursday, but keep in mind that all of the UH players haven't arrived yet for the 2011-12 season. Many will be coming in closer to the July 5 start date of the second summer school session, and will join their teams at that point.
My colleague Cindy Luis received a copy of the rosters. Here's the breakdown:
Army: Gerry Blakes, Hauns Brereton; Central Medical: Vander Joaquim; Electricians Hawaii: Zane Johnson, Trevor Wiseman, Pi‘i Minns; Kainoa Chu*; Grantco Pacific: Davis Rozitis, Bobby Miles; National Fire Protection: Ronnie Stevens, Joston Thomas; Wealth Strategy Partners: Dillon Biggs.
