The professional career of former Hawaii women’s basketball star Sarah Toeaina is off to a rousing start.

Toeaina, of the Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters in the Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL), was named league MVP today after putting up some huge numbers.

She averaged 20 points and 9.7 rebounds in the 2018-19 season for the Hatters, who were just knocked out in the league semifinals.


As she did in her UH days, Toeaina got to the free-throw line repeatedly in England, with 44 more attempts than any other player in the league.

Toeaina tweeted enthusiastically about her award.

Toeaina was a two-time All-Big West first-teamer at UH and finished No. 9 in career Wahine points with 1,204.

    This is news. Sarah Toeaina was Laura Beeman’s best recruit. I did not know she was still playing.
