The Rainbow Warriors took to the homely confines of Klum Gym for practice today, a first this season.
Gib Arnold put the guys through myriad inbounding plays and had the team practice their press breaker.
Sometimes the defending five would trap point guards Hiram Thompson and Bobby Miles on the inbounds pass, putting the onus on other ‘Bows to bring the ball upcourt.
Freshman forward Trevor Wiseman embraced the task. Wiseman, at 6-foot-7, was essentially a point forward at Golden Valley High in California, and he looked at home running the fast break.
“It felt great. I really don’t get to do it here at practice, that was like one of the first times,” Wiseman said. “It felt great to do that. This year I’m just looking to help the team out best as I can.”
But when the ball’s in his hands …
“Yeah, I definitely feel confident,” he said.
Tomorrow marks a week until the team’s exhibition vs. Chaminade. I’ll start counting down each day with a Q & A session with a UH player conducted this preseason.
