Stepteau to be scholarshipped

By Brian McInnis on May 10, 2018

It’s been a while, Hawaii hoops fans. Here’s something worthwhile to make up for a quiet stretch for offseason news. UH coach Eran Ganot told the Star-Advertiser on Thursday night that guard Brocke Stepteau is set to receive a scholarship for his senior season of 2018-19. It’s been a long time coming for the 5-foot-9 Dallas native, who walked on in 2014-15 when Gib Arnold was still the coach, then endured two coaching changes to help guide Eran Ganot’s Rainbow […]

Wahine look to finish strong

By Jason Kaneshiro on April 27, 2018

Sometimes it comes down to simply playing ball. Many of the external incentives have eluded the Hawaii softball team with three Big West series left. But that doesn’t mean the Rainbow Wahine don’t have anything to play for over the remainder of the schedule. “We really have nothing to lose,” UH third baseman Nicole Lopez said. “Have fun on the field and play these last nine games strong. We’re not really playing for anything but, just these nine games can […]

Wahine basketball, soccer teams fill positions

By Brian McInnis on April 19, 2018

Until last season, when he decided to relocate to the mainland, assistant coach Alex Delanian was a key cog in Laura Beeman’s Rainbow Wahine basketball operation. After that, it was difficult to tell how far back their professional relationship went. Preceding and following UH’s 2017-18 games against Delanian’s new team, Big West rival UC Santa Barbara, Beeman conceded little in that department. In the thick of battles for seeding position, their history — which began at USC and included UH’s […]

Wahine host Big West leader Cal State Fullerton

By Jason Kaneshiro on April 19, 2018

Change has been fairly constant for the Hawaii softball team. Since the start of the season, UH coach Bob Coolen has continually tinkered with the lineup and went 13 games before repeating a batting order. In all, he’s written 24 different combinations over 38 games and 18 players have at least one start this season. Coolen wrote in an identical nine, changing only the pitcher spot, during a five-game stretch in Big West play. But he hinted more changes might […]

Toeaina takes top honors

By Brian McInnis on April 15, 2018

Add one more award to Sarah Toeaina’s collection. The Hawaii women’s basketball senior was honored for one last time to cap her decorated career on Sunday, as she was the recipient of the Ah Chew Goo Award — the program’s most prestigious individual honor — at the Rainbow Wahine postseason banquet for the second straight year. Toeaina also repeated as an All-Big West first-teamer in 2017-18, averaging 16.5 points and finishing as the ninth-leading scorer in program history (1,204 points). […]
