Deepest apologies, but it’s been a hectic week. So, in review:
On Wednesday, post player Zigmars Raimo celebrated his 21st birthday. In what is a UH basketball tradition, the birthday honoree is serenaded and then presented with a cupcake.
And, yes, you’re not having a flashback. As part of the practice rotation, the ‘Bows took a turn this week in Klum Gym. And, yes, it’s still as stuffy as it was back in the sweaty heyday. So, where are the ‘BowZos now?
On Thursday morning, the UH football spent 90 minutes finalizing its game plan for Saturday’s game against UNLV.
Rest — and a bye week — does a body good. The Warriors have mended from the bumps and bruises. The new buzz word, by the way, is “spry.”
On Thursday night, safety Tumua Tuinei had two amazing stand-up set as part of Andy Bumatai’s comedy showcase at the Blue Note.
Today, it was a quadruple day. The Rainbow Wahine basketball team played, and the Wahine volleyball team was set for senior night. Meanwhile, the football team had a final walk-through session, and the men’s basketball team had another defensive-oriented practice in Klum.
The good news is Gym II, which has been under renovation for old age and flood damage, is nearly ready. Word on the street is there’s even air conditioning.
Oh, and Sheriff Drammeh, who missed the basketball ‘Bows’ season-opening tournament last week, appears to be ready to go. He has participated in the past three practices. The ‘Bows practice again on Saturday afternoon in advance of Sunday’s game against Northern Arizona.
The winner of the football tickets is Brian Norman.
