All present

The entire UH men’s basketball team is enrolled in the second summer session, which began today.
Attendance is key because 1) the Warriors can have full participation in the eight hours of individual/team drills they are allowed each week during the summer, and 2) it will ease the way for the extra practices granted in advance of next month’s trip to Australia.
Among the newcomers are combo guard Eddie Stansberry, and post players Dawson Carper and Owen Hulland. Kapolei High graduate Zoan Nedd joins as a walk-on.

    Hope we have a good hoop year!

    Isn’t there supposed to be another local walk-on joining the team?

  4. Inyoface July 2, 2018 12:36 pm

    When does fall practice start?

  5. snowmantoo July 2, 2018 12:52 pm

    Football, baseball and now basketball? Did I miss something or are you just a busy guy?

    Basketball practice begins July 23 and the trip is Aug 8 to 18.

    In the meantime, some of the men and women UH players are playing in the Hawaii Development Basketball (Summer) Lge. The men’s first games start tonight. Derrick Low is a co-founder of this league.

    3…. Huthifah Abdel Jawad was also listed on the new men’s basketball roster that was later modified to show only the returning players until July 2.

  11. Da Punchbowl Kid July 2, 2018 2:34 pm

    Yes, he’s that busy.

    No, I’m not a bot.

    Philippine National basketball team got into a fight with the Australian team at the FIBA’s. 13 ejections, 9 from the Philippine team and a default win to Aussies. MMA ?

    Gabe Norwood was one of the three players left on the Filipino team.

    Am I a robot? Not according to the bot filter.

    Wow! Fine sportsmen.

    #14: Thanks for pointing that out. Gabe, of course, is Brian Norwood’s son.

    Christian Stanhardinger(sp?) was also involved in the fracas between Australia and a team from the Philippines

  18. Stephen Tsai July 2, 2018 6:41 pm

    Heck of a fight

  20. cappie the dog July 2, 2018 7:01 pm

    Here is something you don’t hear everyday.

    Who was better: Christian Standhardinger or Troy Ostler?

  21. islandman July 2, 2018 7:06 pm

    17…. Was Standhardinger there ? He isn’t on the roster that i checked.

  22. clyde July 2, 2018 7:09 pm

    17/21: Stanhardinger apparently is recovering from a knee injury. So, I don’t believe he’s on the national team that played Australia.

  23. islandman July 2, 2018 7:31 pm

    Thon Maker with the flying kick attempts and someone with the dodges.

    Why can’t Hawaii produce more NCAA Division I level basketball talent? Kids love basketball here. It can’t be just the “height” issue of Hawaii kids. Muggsy Bogues was only 5’3″ after all. Earl Boykins 5’6″. Got some good sized kids playing High School ball. Seems Hawaii Girls basketball has produced a few more than Boys have over the years. Miah Ostrowski was terrific and very averaged sized. He would have been good on any Big West Conference team. We could produce more talent like him I’m sure. We got to figure it out.

    BTW it was a good fight. Flying kicks, Superman punch, hammer fists and a mean forearm chop false crack. I’ve never seen that in a basketball melee before.

  26. H-Man July 3, 2018 4:52 am

    Re local basketball talent, I believe the difference between Hawaii and the Mainland is the kids on the Mainland play the sport year-round. Hawaii’s kids play baseball year-round and produce many D1 players. Same for football. Local kids play, actually practice year-round via various football camps like the Brian Derby camp., They’re receiving top quality coaching outside of the school system. I don’t know that the same situation exists for basketball.
