Bermudez wants to play for Warriors

There’s all kinds of luck to be found in Las Vegas.

The Hawaii basketball team is hoping it found some late good luck in Victor Bermudez, a 6-foot-4 combo guard out of Las Vegas.

Bermudez said he recently committed to play for the Warriors starting in the 2011-12 season, although his academic transcripts still need to be cleared before he can enroll.

“I have verbally committed to the University of Hawaii,” Bermudez said. “I like Hawaii, in general. It’s a great place to be. Great environment, great fans. It’s like another version of Vegas, but it’s Hawaii.”

Bermudez went relatively unnoticed this past season at University Park Academy, a prep school in Houston. However, he has been impressive in recent AAU tournaments as the starting point guard for the 24/7 Hoops Elite team out of Las Vegas.

Bermudez previously played at Cheyenne High in Nevada, but attended the prep school in Texas to improve his skills both on the court and in the classroom.

Bermudez said the Hawaii coaches noticed him at an AAU tournament in California earlier this month and have been following him ever since. He said he likely would have attended a junior college if Hawaii had not contacted him.

He has been playing the role of a scoring point guard for the 24/7 Hoops Elite team, and has an ability to shoot the 3-pointer or take it to the rim. But he said he would prefer to play more of a pure point guard position in college.

“I’ll say I’m an all-around player,” he said. “I can do everything – I like getting up and down the floor mostly. I’m considered a combo, but I would like to play the point guard position.”

If Bermudez’s academic transcripts are cleared, he could attend UH during the upcoming fall semester and would have four seasons of eligibility.


  1. looks like a redshirt kinda player..small project like coleman would have been..doesn’t look explosive from the video but looks to have a smoother shot than coleman..he wasn’t heavily recruited but hopefully a sleeper

  2. Looks like your road trip already paid off, Dayton. If Bermudez attended a prep school, would he still have a redshirt year available or 4 to play 4?

  3. welcome aboard victor.

    still would like to see a big arrive on the shores of waikiki beach.

  4. Looks to me like the kid has potential. I like that he wants to play point but has the ability to shoot the 3 or take it to he hoop.

  5. side note.
    doesn’t victor bermudez look like a young martin lawerence?

  6. Welcome Victor. Remember to get it done in the classroom FIRST, then we look forward to cheering you on as a Warrior.
