Two teams undefeated in Summer League

It’s about to get interesting in the Hawaii College Basketball Summer League. Many of the players from the 2013-14 roster for the University of Hawai’i are expected to arrive in Honolulu this week, and they will be spread throughout the teams in the Summer League.

After Tuesday’s night’s two games at Manoa Valley District Park Gym, two teams are undefeated so far: Central Medical Clinic and National Fire Protection Co. are both 3-0.

National Fire defeated defending champion Solar Universe, 85-79, in Tuesday’s late game. The game was tied at 79 in the closing minutes, but National Fire scored the final six points to take the victory.

Jeff Greer scored 27 points to lead National Fire, which is expected to get a boost with the addition of UH forward Isaac Fotu, possibly as soon as this Saturday.


UH redshirt freshman Dyrbe Enos is the only current player from the roster in town right now, and he scored 12 points in the loss for Solar Universe. He played most of the game at point guard in place of Derrick Low (Iolani/Washington State), who got married last weekend and is also preparing for a tryout with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Solar Universe will add UH guard Brandon Spearman, as well as newcomers Negus Webster-Chan and Niko Filipovich.

In Tuesday’s early game, Central Medical remained undefeated with a 95-71 romp over Clark Hatch Fitness. Former UH forward Bill Amis scored 24 points, and Iolani/Colorado School of Mines graduate Kyle Pape scored 26 to lead Central Medical.

Point guard recruit Quincy Smith is expected to join the Central Medical team next week.

Clark Hatch Fitness dropped to 0-3, but should improve with the additions of Keith Shamburger and Michael Thomas next week.

The Summer League will continue with games this Saturday and next Tuesday at Manoa Valley District Park.


  1. Summer league will definitely look different once the UH boys start arriving. Can’t wait for some NWC highlights. Also hope to see Michael Thomas, Shamburger and Quincy highlights also. Want to see the type of talent UH is going to have going into this season.

  2. Clark Hatch is 0-3 without Christian Standhardinger. Big time loss for them. Hopefully Shamburger (and Thomas) is able to get them over the hump. Avila has struggled this season compared to last season.

    Central Medical and National Fire have a good combination of inside-outside threats. Once Spearman, NWC, Filipovich, and Zane Johnson? are in town, Solar Universe will run and gun all day.

  3. Yup. The league really starts next week. The influx of talent changes the whole look of the league.

  4. Yes, FUHA, gobows and turfwar:

    , when Shamburger, Nevels, Q Smith, A Valdes, Michael Thomas, Negus Webster-Chan, and a healed Brandon Spearman, join the summer league, we shall see the athleticism Gib has been talking about. I know it is only summer league, however, just the quickness and hops, should be exciting. Hopefully Michael Thomas and Aaron Valdes will be skying and dunk city. Q, Smith, Keith S., Nevels, Niko, will be wheeling and dealing.

    Correct, fellow fans, (and kudos to Dyrbe Enos, he looks much stronger this year!), when Isaac, Caleb Dressler, Stefan Jovanovich and company come to town, look for some Big Boy ball, though summer leagues are dominated by guards, however, let the UH bigs throw down some!

    Should be exciting!
    Mahalo Plenty Dayton, great, great coverage!


  5. Dayton: Thank you so very much for hard work, in video and articles on summer league, and UH BB athletes past and present!

    Just a side point, I look at the SA sports section, calendar/scoreboard, unless I am missing it, I don’t see scores, or high scoreres etc for the Manoa College Summer League? Do you know if they are going to post scores of the summer league games?

    Thank you Dayton.

    Maybe another fan on this forum would know?
