More old ties for Taylor

Interesting note on today’s practice in Klum Gym: the session was observed by three coaches of Division III North Central College (Ill.). UH assistant coach Benjy Taylor was the head coach there from 2001 to 2004, a few years before he took the reins at Chicago State — UH’s opponent at the Lahaina Civic Center on Maui on Friday.

North Central plays at Hawaii-Hilo on Friday, too.


Senior forward Bill Amis continues to progress in his return from a stress fracture in his right foot. Amis wasn’t in on everything — he must gradually work his reps up as he recovers from being out almost a month.


Anyone still wondering about the Chicago State game, there will be NO television or live video streaming of the game. You’ll have to listen on KKEA, 1420-AM, or watch the live stats on

I will also be doing live twitter updates @Brian_McInnis.


Look for an expanded Q&A transcript of my first interview with new UH basketball player Miah Ostrowski coming tomorrow (Wednesday).
