Brumfield on the way to recovery
Dominick Brumfield was the only player on the Hawaii basketball roster unable to participate in the ‘Ohana Hoopfest on Oct. 15.
The 6-foot-8 forward is still recovering from a fractured kneecap, but said he should be able to return to practices with the rest of his teammates soon.
“My knee’s feeling great,” he said. “I think probably in a couple of weeks I’ll be back to full contact everything.”
Although Brumfield has not been cleared to participate in basketball practices, he did perform the Tahitian haka with his teammates at the ‘Ohana Hoopfest.
“That was a lot of fun,” he said. “I liked that whole atmosphere with the fans and everything.”
Brumfield is a transfer from Big Bend College (Wash.), and is in his first season at Hawaii.
