Spearman earns Big West honor


Senior guard Brandon Spearman was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week, based on his performance in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic last week.

Here is the announcement from the UH Media Relations Office:

IRVINE, Calif. – Brandon Spearman secured Big West Men’s Basketball Player of the Week honors after leading Hawai’i to a 2-1 record in the prestigious Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic and capturing all-tournament honors.

The 6-4 guard averaged 14.3 ppg and 6.0 rpg in three contests and lifted UH to back-to-back wins against Saint Mary’s and Oregon State. The Chicago native scored a season-high 17 points in a narrow 62-61 loss to Boise State in the tournament opener, making 6 of 9 shots overall, including 3 of 6 from three-point range.

In a 76-74 triumph over the Gaels, Spearman contributed 12 points and seven rebounds. In UH’s 79-73 win over Oregon State, UH’s first meeting against a Pac-12 squad in seven years, Spearman notched 14 points and 10 rebounds for his first career double-double. He also had a pair of assists and shot 5-for-10 from the field.

For the tournament, Spearman shot 53.6 (15-of-28) percent from the floor and 54.5 (6-for-11) from three-point territory. He has helped UH to a 9-3 record overall, including wins in seven of the last eight games.

Spearman and the rest of the Rainbow Warriors are back in action Monday night when they host Norfolk State in a non-conference game at 7:00 p.m.
