Here is the schedule:

> Aug. 17 — Sydney Kings at Abbotsleigh College

BYU was unbeaten, nationally ranked and still an unrivaled rival.

And then on a defining day in 2001, Nick Rolovich threw TD passes — lots and lots of TD passes — Chad Owens scored on two returns, the wideouts were warned about excessive celebrating for their line dance following a touchdown, and Craig Stutzmann delivered the (in)famous PAT — punt after touchdown. All of which led to a fun celebration and the ensuing birth of the Hawaii Bowl.

The magic will be repeated with today’s featured presentation in the second of the Manoa Matinee filmfest in the lecture auditorium at the UH athletic complex. The original video begins at 2 p.m. Popcorn will be distributed for free.

    The Wahine leave Tuesday, Aug 7 for New Zealand, then go to Melbourne on Aug 14. The first 2 games in N Z are scheduled to be streamed, Aug 9 and 12.
    Any coverage of the Men’s trip other than from the UH media staff ?

    Wishing both bb teams have a great trip Down Under.

    Could be a 10-day trip. Going over, you lose a day, coming back, you gain back the day.

    I am still not a robot.

    Coaches need to work with Hemsley on his shooting for. I don’t think he would be making many jump shots with his leg wide apart like that. He is not standing on the free throw line so he is feet should not be like that. Would be extremely tough or nearly impossible for him to pump fake and the drive with that kind of footwork.

    ^^^^meant to say shooting FORM.

    I don’t think any local media is traveling to Australia. We’re gonna have to contract Scott Harding or Adrian Thomas.

    For the Wahine:
    ” All games will be provided with live twitter updates @WahineBBall, as well as a continuously updated blog on for all the Rainbow Wahines’ travels. “

    #4 Kahuna: Actually, I believe he is practicing free throws, shooting at the temporary baskets along the side of the court.

    While in high school, at the birth of the 64-team format, I remember watching Seton Hall and thinking, wow, this guy is from Australia.

    Andrew Gaze.

    And then he was gone the next year.

    Will Bob Coolen ever recruit another shutdown Aussie pitcher?

    A finesse pitcher, obviously, exposes a shaky defense.

    There was one season when every hit to the right side of the infield was hold your breath time.

    Coach Coolen should tag along.

    If one of these new guys can knock down threes, then Sheriff Drammeh, who I like, can focus solely on drawing fouls to the basket. If Drammeh figures out what his skill-set is(which Mike Thomas did for awhile before reverting back to taking ill-advised threes), he could be a conference second-teamer.

    His game is sort of interesting.

    He is fast.

    #8 yup if you’re going to practice shooting, start with free throws.
