Who would you nominate as Hawaii’s candidate for WAC player of the week? There are three legitimate choices, as UH beat Louisiana Tech 71-58 and New Mexico State 76-70 at the Stan Sheriff Center.
>> Junior guard Zane Johnson averaged 19 points and hit nine 3-pointers
>> Senior forward Bill Amis averaged 16 points and eight rebounds
>> Sophomore center Vander Joaquim averaged 14.5 points and 12 rebounds and 2.5 blocks
We’ll find out this morning if any made the cut. It might be difficult with the likes of San Jose State’s Adrian Oliver going for 36 points against New Mexico State on Wednesday, but you never know.
UPDATE: And the winner is …. Boise State guard La’Shard Anderson, who averaged 28 points, 4.5 assists and 3.0 steals in two road wins last week. Hard to argue with that.
Zane Johnson was the UH nominee.
