Here’s info from our basketball writer, Dayton Morinaga:
The University of Hawai’i men’s basketball team is no longer in the running
for two recruits.
• Rafael Crescencio, an athletic 6-foot-9 forward at Arizona Western College,
made a commitment to play for the University of San Diego. Crescencio had narrowed his choices to UH and USD. He averaged 13.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore at Arizona Western this past season.
• Kevin Menner, a high-scoring 6-5 forward at Saddleback (Calif.) College, is no longer being recruited by Hawai’i. He averaged 19.3 and 7.0 rebounds per game this past season.
The UH coaches are now looking at other possibilities, and still want to
fill two more scholarships before May 20.

Defensive end Victor Clore is a candidate for the last remaining scholarship. He works nights as a bouncer, sometimes getting only 2 hours of sleep before heaing to UH for practice or workouts. He supports himself through that job and financial aid. “You can’t feed yourself on hopes and dreams,” Clore said.

The WAC Football Media Preview is July 28-29 in Salt Lake City. UH is allowed to bring up to two players. John Estes will be one. Any suggestions for the other? Greg Alexander? Fetaiagogo Fonoti? Brashton Satele or Malcolm Lane?
