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.
