'Bows back at it // Johnson over Jackson

Following a brutal first Western Athletic Conference road trip that saw the Hawaii men’s basketball team go 0-2, the Rainbow Warriors (9-5 overall) returned to the warm, friendly confines of the Stan Sheriff Center for practice today.

After a lengthy film session, the team still belted out their daily cheer of “We are … champions!” to start the session. Doesn’t look like their spirits were irreparably damaged from the toughest road trip of the season, losses at Utah State and Nevada.

No sign of senior forward Bill Amis, who is still recovering from that nagging stress fracture in his right foot. Not a good sign for his chances to play in the home doubleheader (Thursday-Saturday) against Idaho (7-6, 1-1) and Boise State (9-5, 2-0).

Also, freshman point guard Bobby Miles was limited to riding an exercise bike after getting some wisdom teeth pulled.


Even after a three-game week which saw Rainbow Wahine freshman forward Kamilah Jackson average 19.3 points and 16.0 rebounds, she was not picked for her first Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week award.

That honor went to Louisiana Tech’s Adrienne Johnson today. The Lady Techsters forward averaged 27.0 points and 11.3 rebounds in three games last week.

Tough luck for Jackson, who probably would have won it on any other week with sublime  numbers like that and a 2-1 team record.

    Thanks for the info and insight to Wahine BB, this blog can only increase the Wahine BB interest, I can only hope that the interest will increase like softball. Do you know if some one will have a softball/baseball blog this season. I really like the individual sport blogs, I don’t like to hunt for comments or miss comments because its buried in other blogs.

    I know this is off UH BB, but I noticed Shaena-Lyn (Idaho), hasn’t played the last couple games. We only have 2 times to see the Kuehu’s play, so I hoping it’s not injury related.

    You’re welcome. I haven’t heard right now if we’ll have anything on those two sports.
