The 2018-19 Star-Advertiser All-State Basketball Player of the Year is apparently Manoa bound.

Saint Francis senior guard Kameron Ng posted an announced commitment to Hawaii on Sunday night.

Ng, at 5 feet 11, scored 21 points in 12 of 15 games in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu. He was a repeat winner of the Gatorade Hawaii Player of the Year Award.


It’s not immediately known if Ng has accepted a scholarship offer or a walk-on position. UH does have scholarships to give; to date, it has signed only one player (Junior Madut) in the spring signing period, along with Jessiya Villa coming off a two-year mission. To the best of our knowledge, UH has three scholarships remaining, so one could conceivably go to Ng.

UPDATE: Stephen Tsai subsequently reported that Ng was extended a preferred walk-on spot.


Here’s an extended interview Ng and his brother Kordel conducted with Hawaii Prep World’s Paul Honda during the season.

    Tsai from the Star-Advertiser reported he was offered a preferred walk-on spot. If that’s the case, what happened to all the other Division 1 offers that were constantly reporting Ng had?

    The star advertiser already broke that this was a walk-on offer. Why did he turn down supposed D1 offers to take this one? And Ng is not 5’11”, maybe 5’9″ on a good day.

    Sounds like he may have been offered from Portland, which is D2. I think that means only tuition waiver, not a full ride. I heard all those D1 offers were put out there by others, not him. Read into that what you like.

    The young man just got to take the Brocke Stepteau approach and just work hard. In two years, if he is a big contributor to the team, he will get his scholarship.

    Um… University of Portland is not a D2, it’s a D1. But other reports claim they were only interested in him walking on as well. I just want some clarification on all these OFFERS that were being reported he had for the past year or two. There were direct quotes in articles by Paul Honda and Stephen Tsai where Ng said he had multiple offers from multiple divisions. Not hard to find online.

    Congratulations Kameron! This kid is hungry, he works hard, he’s got a great attitude, and he’s a great student. Walk on or not, this is the kind of kid any coach wants in his program. With the addition of Kameron Ng, UH will have 4 local boys on the roster next year: Ng, Samuta Avea, Zoar Nedd, and Jessiya Villa. Has that ever happened before in UH basketball history?
