Standhardinger repeats as Player of the Week


Christian Standhardinger and the Hawai’i basketball team remained on a roll last week, and the 6-foot-8 junior from Germany was once again recognized with the Big West Conference Player of the Week award.

Standhardinger averaged 20.0 points on 67 percent shooting and 11.0 rebounds to lead the Warriors to home victories over Long Beach State and UC Irvine last week. The wins were the fourth and fifth in a row for Hawai’i, and the Warriors moved up to second place in the conference at 9-4.

He tallied 20 points and 13 rebounds in the victory over first-place Long Beach State, then contributed 20 points and nine boards in the win over UC Irvine. Standhardinger is averaging 22.4 points and 11.2 rebounds per game during the Warriors’ five-game winning streak.

He was also named the Big West Player of the Week last week, and is now the only player in the conference to win the award in back-to-back weeks this season.

For the season, Standhardinger is averaging 16.3 points with a .518 field goal percentage and 8.1 rebounds per game. He also leads the team in steals (33) and minutes played (29.4 per game).

The Warriors will depart Honolulu for two Big West road games this week – at UC Davis on Thursday, then at Pacific on Saturday.


  1. Congrats Christian:
    Your consecutive POW as expected. We all knew how good you are.
    Besides all these magic you brought to the TEAM, one category is simply amazing is STEALS and, you topped all your teammates!
    Have the pleasure listening to your interview with Garry Dicman ~ His listeners
    are captivated. good job!
    Hawaii are extremely proud of you!
    Coach Gib got his #1 Captain for next season already;
    And “The Real Deal” will be a very strong Co-Captains!?
    Two BigWest First Team winners for 2012-2013.

  2. Congratz once again Christian, well deserved. Keep it going.

  3. Kudos and congrats to Christian,what an honor, getting it done in classroom and on the court, Now, Christian and entire team, go get 2 wins on the road!

    Imagine, Christian, Spearman, Jefferson, Davis as senior leaders next year, along with super sophs, Isaac and Jawato, along with Roop, Michael, Ozi, and incoming freshman, MIchael Thomas, RS Aaron Valdes, RS Caleb Dressler, RS Dyrbe Enos,freshman Stefan J., and RS Jr. transfer Keith S.. things look good for next year too!!

  4. Wow! Back to back honors. That is just great. Well deserved for a hard playing guy.

  5. Standhardinger is playing like a maniac, like there’s no tomorrow. Well deserved. If Arnold has one more scholorship open he should look for a shooting guard or a small forward with range.

    Time for Arnold to consider playing a box and 1 against Corey Hawkins. Otherwise, gotta go man to man with trying Spearman, Jefferson, and Tavita all trying to defending Hawkins. Gotta change it up to give different looks. UC Davis cannot beat UH making 2 pt baskets. Thus, defending the 3 pt. line is the key.



    Awesome TEAM & Christian!
    YOUʻRE ALSO Making GREAT First Impressions on ALL Those New & Potential Fans
    who didnʻt already know of You & The TEAM ON ALL Five Local TV Stations several times a Night Several Days/Weeks in a row, just like the Winning Streak…Even Coach doing His “BOOOM!” Impression of YOU is Great!

    PLEASE Never Slow Down — Never Ran out of Intensity, Passion, Fire or Fouls: The Energizer
    i Canʻt Tell (Guy Thing) But when you come on the TV, Women in the room say “Heʻs good-lookin”
    i think they mean you look for good openings and your excellent shot-selection is part of your high (60%+) shooting percentage…WAIT ʻtil the Filipino Community catches on….(Should be NLT Next Seasson — Team should reach out for an instant boost in Fans/Sellouts — IF you want to, youʻll have a career-long following)…..

    YOU oughta Know — the repeat Player of the Week, with relatively consistent play the rest of the way, all but ensures second team, but more likely, First-Team All Big West and at least Votes for Player of the Year … thereʻs only 9–10 BW Weeks and ALL the Coaches and Media Know ʻbout (and are ʻtrained to vote for) you ….soon the Pro Scouts, too…

    KEEP That Personal and TTEAM Foocuss — PPULLL UP Moree Teammmates to tdse Wiinnninng Performance Leevels — TThaatʻs a lot off wwhat Leeadership iis aabbbout….
