UPDATED: Warriors get offensive in road win at CSUN


NORTHRIDGE, Calif. – Just in case anyone was wondering, the University of Hawai’i basketball team can win with its offense, too.

The Warriors relied on its offensive game, for a change, in an 84-73 victory over CSUN before a crowd of 1,127 at The Matadome. Hawai’i improved to 15-7 overall and 3-3 in the Big West Conference, including two victories over CSUN. The Matadors dropped to 6-16 and 2-5.

Hawai’i shot a season-best 53.7 percent from the field, and displayed an unselfishly balanced attack. Eight players scored between eight and 15 points for the Warriors.

“I’ve been waiting for just a very unselfish, balanced attack, and we did that tonight,” head coach Benjy Taylor said. “It was fun to watch, it really was. I was looking at the stats, and I couldn’t believe how many guys we had between 15 and eight (points) … except for our free throw shooting, a near-perfect game for us at this stage of the season.”

Sophomore forward Stefan Jankovic led the way with 15 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore wing Aaron Valdes added 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting. He scored 10 in the decisive first half, when the Warriors shot 58.8 percent from the field and took a 50-34 lead into intermission.


“It was a good team win,” Valdes said. “Everybody contributed that played. We talked in the beginning of the week about playing together and just sharing the ball and trusting each other and I think we did a good job of that tonight.”

Freshman guard Isaac Fleming, who joined the team a day late for this trip due to flu-like symptoms, added 11 points in 11 minutes on 3-of-3 shooting from the field and 5 of 6 on free throws.

“Technically, I wasn’t supposed to play but where I come from nothing’s going to stop me from playing the game of basketball,” Fleming said. “We played as a team, we played together, and we just fought. That’s what good teams do.”

Junior point guard Roderick Bobbitt added 10 points, eight assists and three steals. “Real good team work,” he said. “We had a lot of plays where we had extra passes to get open shots.”

In Hawai’i’s previous victory over CSUN in Honolulu, Bobbitt had eight of the Warriors’ team-record 20 steals. This time, the Warriors were not as aggressive with their full-court traps, and instead relied on a disciplined 1-2-2 zone for most of the game.

“We had to,” Taylor said. “I knew we wasn’t going to turn them over 28 times. Reggie (Theus) is a good coach and they had a good game plan against our pressure, so I knew early in the game we weren’t going to turn them over, but we still disrupted them a lot … we had to beat them another way, and that way hasn’t been great for us this year, but we really wanted to slow it down and execute and get the ball reversed a couple times.”


Hawai’i finished with eight steals – two below its average – but also took care of the ball on offense. The Warriors tied their season-low with just seven turnovers.

“First half, we played good, we had some transition,” Jankovic said. “I feel like in the second half, near the end of the game, especially if we knock down more free throws, I feel like we settled in offensively, ran our plays and executed.”

Four Warriors finished with eight points: Garrett Nevels, Negus Webster-Chan, Quincy Smith and Stefan Jovanovic.

Hawai’i won the opening tip, scored on its first possession on a driving layup by Bobbitt, and never trailed thereafter.

Hawai’i had a 27-17 lead when the Matadors went on an 8-0 run to get as close as 27-25 with 7:14 remaining in the first half. The Warriors answered immediately with a 10-0 run to push the lead back up to 37-25. Nevels hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds remaining in the first half to give Hawai’i a 50-34 lead at intermission.

“We aren’t good enough to play on our heels and we started the game off with probably four or five misses around the basket,” CSUN head coach Reggie Theus said. “They hit a couple of 3s and now we’re behind. We beat them in the second half, but we spotted them 16 points. We got it down to four points, but couldn’t get over the hump, which has a lot to do with bodies on the bench.”

A 3-pointer by Jankovic early in the second half gave the Warriors a 55-37 lead, but the Matadors got back in it with a 15-3 run to cut the Hawai’i lead to 58-52 with 12:16 remaining in the second half.


The Warriors responded an 11-2 surge that pushed their lead up to 69-54 with 9:16 remaining. The surge included seven free throws, although Hawai’i went 19 of 33 (57.6 percent) from the line for the game.

“For the most part, we came out of timeouts and executed, got what we needed or got a good look at it,” Taylor said. “That’s what we’ve been working on the last couple days.”

Stephen Maxwell did his part to keep the Matadors in it, finishing with game-highs of 28 points and 17 rebounds. Stephan Hicks, CSUN’s leading scorer entering the game at 16.6 points per game, finished with just four points on 1-of-10 shooting.

The Warriors will remain on the road for another Big West Conference game at Long Beach State on Saturday (2 p.m. Hawai’i time). The 49ers remained in a tie for first place after a 91-85 overtime victory at Cal State Fullerton on Thursday.

    One Game, One Battle at A Time

    Go Bows !!

    And thankyou to the families of All the Team for your support.

    We love them Bows !!

  4. HUGE MAHALO to Schmidt Ohana, Ameriprise and Pacific Risk Solutions for sponsorship, and for video coverage.. Best in the Business. no other Media outlet, or entity covers. UH MBB like WI.. great job, going on 5 years Dayton.. Thank you so much, from the hard core, live hard and bleed green and white MBB fans , whether for 4 months or 44 years !!

    Aloha.. and Mahalo Again..


  5. CBS is predicting Long Beach State as the winner of the BWC.

    BWC has improved this year in RPI…last year it was ranked 19th. This year we are #13 out of the 33 conferences.

    GO BOWZ…let’s make a statement tomorrow…got to contain Caffey in crunch time.

  6. Benjy on Artie’s Show…Did NOT Say it Out Loud (but implied)…

    “Anxious to see How we measure up versus Long Beach State (tomorrow night)…

    … i like our chances @ Anaheim…”

    BUT Anaheim Requires WINNING THREE IN A ROW …

    Two out of Three probably means NO CONSOLATION Prize (NIT) except for Regular Season Champion…

    GO ‘BOWS!
    You Beat The Blacktops (For the First Time @ Northridge)
    NEXT: STEP UP Again and
    BEAT The Beach!

  7. The key to beating Long Beach is stopping Mike Caffey. Take turns on him, Bobbitt, Fleming, Quncy, Nevels, Filipovich, even shake out Valdes on him too. Shadow him wherever he goes. Deny him the ball. Hound him until he gets frustrated. Stop him and Hawaii will win tomorrow.

  8. Mike Caffey:

    *On Jan, 3 of this year, Caffey had his lowest scoring game with only 6 points in 14 minutes in their win over Fresno Pacific.

    *This season, Mike Caffey is BY FAR, Long Beach’s best scorer at over 18 points a game (2nd place is David Samuels at 9 pts/game)

    *Caffey is the team leader at assists at 3.5 assists/game, he’s the most prolific 3-pt shooter on the team, and ranks 3rd in rebounds at 3.8 rebounds a game.

    *The LAST TIME Hawaii played Long Beach (at Long Beach), Hawaii’s defense held Mike Caffey at just 5 points in almost the entire game (37 minutes). – Feb. 27, 2014

    *** My point… If we can contain Mike Caffey with our improved defense, we’ve got a GREAT chance to win this game… given how vital Caffey is to his team. How Mike Caffey goes, so goes Long Beach.***

  9. Let me echo RunBows’ mahalo to the Schmidt ohana for allowing Dayton to take the show on the road. Loved the slow-motion instant replays of Valdes’ facial dunk on Maxwell and Fleming’s spin move and layup.
    Fleming’s efficiency — 11 points in 11 minutes — overshadowed Quincy’s solid contribution — 8 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 0 turnovers — in 18 minutes. Does Quincy seem to play better on the road? Coming in he was a 50-percent FT shooter, and he went 4 for 4.

  10. From Long Beach St. MBB site:

    Yes.. Caffey scoring twice as much as next guy.. go ahead UH MBB defend him, .. make sure another 2 guys don’t go off for 25 pts.. Team defense..
    Still As Benjy alluded to, If ever UH MBB team offense caught up with their defense, they are a very, very good team, and can win games..Hope UH can shoot well..
    Either way.. 3 more games on the road.. and we know the formula.. One Game at a time.. and give effort.
    Tremendous shout out, I agree with Clyde.. Have you all noticed, Quincy Smith’s play as of late, maybe past 3 or 4 games, steady. does not turn ball over, plays defense, scores some, just steady, and very coachable..Q , that is his role, coming off bench and providing that spark.. Fleming, the guy, probably should be at Home, in dorm, resting, fluids and getting better.. wow.. team guy.. he played very good game, running PG duties, and when they needed him, those breakdown moves, off ball screens.. to the hoop , fouled and made FT’s or made layups.. what a Warrior, Jovanovich, steady.. Unreal 4 guys had 4 fouls for last maybe 8 or 9 minutes of game.. and only MT fouls out.. have to watch fouls.. Janks.. what a weapon.. He IS A MATCHUP problem for BWC teams.. a guy 6’11” that can handle, drive and finish, hook shots, floaters. 3 ball, good FT shooter.. and gets some rebounds 7, and 2 blocks….in what 18 minuntes.. Wow..

    Team, this latest video, that is the Team that you want playing, although have to make FT’s, in Anaheim..

    Go Bows !!

  11. Janks actually 23 minutes.. and had 4 fouls at end of game..refs really calling UH for fouls.. because they are aggressive.. any touch with hands.. because, UH does not have those 6’9″ 250 pound bruisers.to body up and …I think UH , hopefully they are just getting started.. what better place than on the road in Cali.. with family of about half of the team, watching them in stands.. and friends too..

    . more finesse bigs.. .. Yet , Villanova of years ago, upset Georgetown with Patrick Ewing, very lean athletic team..
    LBSU vs UH.. whatever outcome.. battle UH.. 110% and more.. shoot and defend well.. go for the W..
    Warrior Time !!

  12. Does anybody know if full replay of this game is available online? I missed it due to darn pau hana traffic! Sounds like all the guys played great, just what the team needed after that tough loss to Irvine.

  13. Chuck: sometimes, go to Bigwest TV.. and try to click on archive, or past game.. I know, last year. a video of game was available for about half a day..
    That CSUN feed.. pretty good..
    Tomorrow.. ESPN3 feed, excellent.. no commercials though.. just ESPN logo during timeouts..

  14. Chuck:

    Otherwise, Dayton’s video above, is the best hilites compilation(excellent Dayton and crew), I have seen in years.. including the facial slam by Valdes, the the CSUN guard facial on UH, responded by Bobbitt going coast to coast, floater in the lane.. then he goes.. shhhhhh.. quiets crowd with hands down motion.. almost like a AAU game, or park game.. Best Offensive show, of the year by UH.. AND on the road !
    They have to focus, and especially, Rod.. Benjy wants him to be the guy. come BWC tourney and post season to go to line and close out games with FT’s.. just has to focus.. and practice.. HIS MOM was in the crowd.. A lot of love coming from bay area, Oakland..
    These Cali guys have great families and friends.. always, a couple dozen in the stands at the Big West schools cheering on team, see them right behind the bench.. Think I saw Mamma Valdes sitting a couple rows behind UH bench..

  15. Oh yes.. Stef Jovanovich leading the team in FT percentage, what overall for the year at about 82%, Janks shooting overall close to 72%, NWC shoots from long distance, not as many FT’s, he should be in the 70 percent range, in fact whole, team practice, focus, repetition, and shoot FT’s at 75% or better.,. will help them create bigger separation and leads, and close out close games..

    1)UH keep up great Defense
    2)Battle on boards, win or near even
    3)Their last couple of games, excellent taking care of ball, CSUN game only 7 turnovers. Bobbitt had zero turnovers.. and 8 assists.. I think Fleming had 1 turnover.. great ball handling.. BWC time, guards and wings, and 6’11” 2 guard, ? big man.. very long and skilled, Janks.. he is becoming a difference maker, bad knees, so cannot go too long, and stamina.. I like how Jovanovich complements him.. Inside, clean up the misses. and Stef, can make those shots.. team made sure, layups. hook shots, floaters, mid to 3 ball range.. sure handed, the ball was going in .

    4)Shoot FT’s at 75% or better , the 10 guys Now in rotation, Niko gets some minutes to relieve Bobbitt, Nevels, and Smith.. that is good.. need bodies, for stretch run, so guys not burned out. Bobbitt, and Fleming at end of year.

    Go Bows !!

  16. Chuck and others see if this link works.. might still be good for another couple of hours..

    BigWestTV: http://www.bigwest.org/story.asp?story_id=16313

  17. Chuck… sorry, in think they took down the archive.. That link the video , not available.. Sorry.. I think if you watched it shortly after the game yesterday Jan 29 2015, it would still be there.. I guess the BigWest TV rights to video..

    make sure you have access to ESPN watch app, or ESPN3 online feed for tomorrow
    game LBSU.. ESPN.. good stream..

  18. Mike Thomas, 7 minutes, 4 points, 5 fouls. That’s not going to do it, Mike. You gotta stay out of foul trouble. If you can give the team 20 minutes, 8 to 10 points, 6 or 7 rebounds, solid D, and 4 good fouls then you are really helping the team. Come on, man! You are too important to the team not to give us only 7 minutes. You are not Skip “Hatchet Man” Williams (longtime ago UH forward for Hawaii who fouled a lot.)

  19. Skipper Williams…nowhere near skillset of MT…However…janks..jovanovich..thomas…they pick up fouls fast..
    Skip Williams…man that is back in the day..
    6’7″ 220?
    Agreed ..UH MBB need everyone to have chance win road and home games
    was said UH wins they shot 46% or bettef..losses 40% to 30%…team shoot well good chance
    historic..never won in pyramid..can be first win there!

  20. Just thinking about Riley Wallace and then thought about his first team. Thinking man, that team was physical. It started with Reggie Cross at 6-8 and 245 lbs. He seem to make baskets at the rim with everybody hanging on him. He was a 50%+ shooter. He had Vincent Smalls, Terry Houston, Troy Bowe, Phil Lott, Hallums on that team. Those guys are all physical. I was trying to find some stats on Houston as I remember him as a good player but wondered how his stats were. Anybody know how to google better than me? lol.
    I didn’t remember or realize that Nash had Cross go to Leeward CC than sit out for a year before finally going to UH. He had a child out of wedlock and had a hard time with grades. He was a great player out of high school and good friends with Mitch Richmond. Interesting facts that in my youth were not so interesting.

  21. BG Fan, you forgot Cliff Beaubrun, Houston’s sidekick who both transferred from Miami-Dade CC. Hw was an excellent player.

  22. Derek, didn’t mean to leave anyone off as I was doing it off the top of my head but you’re right, he was a good one.

  23. Janks has to take care of his knees so he can last the season. Coach said he got a pair of bad knees. The rest of them need to keep their heads clear and minds sharp. Three more to go on this grueling trip. Coach will take no doze and stay up on night watch in the hallway. Gotta keep the area safe from late nite visitors.

  24. Well, we all knew it was coming. It’ll be interesting to see what the specifics of the alleged violations are, but this pretty much sums up what the program can expect:

    The NCAA classifies Level I violations as “severe breach of conduct” while Level II are listed as “significant breach of conduct.” Violations, if upheld, may be punishable by a postseason ban, scholarship reductions, suspensions, limits of practice or other sanctions.

    This is tough; somehow the team will have to stay focused and close ranks … yet again … because there’s still a season to finish.

    UH could counter the allegations with the steps it has taken, such as parting with Arnold and Akana, and the departure of Fotu. What happens going forward … who knows? I just hope whatever sanctions are eventually meted out don’t severely set back the program.

  25. I’d also like to add my thanks to the WarriorInsider sponsors. A lot of fans visit this site and we know who’s covering the costs. Much appreciation to Valerie Schmidt, Ameriprise and Pacific Risk Solutions.

  26. Now…we see if UH admin…general and private counsel will battle for betterment of student athletes…
    go ahead appeal challenge fight for innocent parties

    That is why this IS the Season…team will still battle play for championships

    still very proud of team

    just focus as you say clyde..win as many games as possible
    still wonder what are allegations? Made public..or is uh admin working on appeal

    still UH MBB team…fight and finish strong..
    allegations only…appeal and reaching lesser penalties …see if UH has as much courage and heart as 2014-15
    MBB team?

    Dayton keep us informed on latest with ncaa allegations

    mahalo for your ans scmidt ohana keeping mbb interest going strong for 5 years !!

  27. Since sanctions won’t come till 90 from now, it doesn’t look like THIS year’s hoops team will be affected… possible death penalty next year.

    But ONE question I have: Is Benjy Taylor also part of the allegations?

  28. I hope Benji Taylor is not part of the allegations…We can also thank BJ for overblowing this mess rather than handling it internally.

  29. njacinto…wonder? Why would uh admin let benjy coach this year?
    Should of disbanded mbb program..
    sad… if allegationsnot made public how sll we ever know
    and by terminating gib..akana..and departure of fotu..does that help?
    the expense having alabama special legal team ..did they help at al..if uh mbb will be dead for several years?
    chime in insiders…How , or what can UH do to still have mbb next couple years
    now..if benjy not part of..does it make sense to retain him for duration of possible sanctions..like how larry little held coaching title for 2 year ncaa probation period in seventies?

    Crazy..level I and II infractions for program that did not win wac or bwc titles or ncaa or nit bids..

    more so..we back this year’s team
    they deserve better..
    battle through adversity
    wonder what gib and counsel will say?

    Well..what can we do??
    Support this team.. still playing for ncaa bid !!

  30. These guys , the team and coaches not affected by severe allegations deserve best help..appeal and fight..
    does UH have the ballast to fight for team..
    too bad ..wonder if pay fines restitution rather than bans
    next season bobbitt and smith juniors..lot are sophs and one freshman..what is their future?
    We will see courage and maturity solidarity in action the next 3 road games..will this..which team knew was coming..remember..whenbenjy said when letter came out it would be circus and he and team would still focus on playing ball?
    I believe him..they been waiting for this..will fight through it..

    Go Bows!!

  31. The scary part is that we cannot afford any more defections since it will hurt the APR. We are right on the border of the APR threshold with the defection of Fotu.

  32. BWC tourney 2015 self sanction…ban….would be very sad..
    if on table…
    did UH do enough..proactive?
    We still love team…they deserve better..and I hope they are given due honor and respect
    to the familiesthat supported team and sons ..mahalo..
    kind of…backs to wall again..wish good finish win wise for 2014-15 MBB season

  33. All depends on how UH handles situation..know benjy worked hard to convince guys to stay at least one year
    just to see how plays out…alabama legal did they advise best they could
    just feel so bad for innocent parties..or ones involved in minor transgressions

    well..still going to watch and cheer on team!!
    They deserve a better outcome !!

  34. Benjy clear …maybe have him head coach for next few years..hard deal
    you right pono..dilemma ..have to retain athletes..more leave..APR hit set back UH MBB despite allegations


    This Ohana has already gone through hell and stayed together…They can use this opportunity for even more motivation to win the Big West Title this year as no response is due until well after the season is over.

    “Inside Sources”, as mentioned in the SA article…hmmm, I wonder who that could be?! Better tune into the radio to see if he is quiet or boisterous.

    Need to focus on just one thing…beat the Beach!!! Show them who has the better beach!

    GO BOWZ…shut down Caffey and Lamb! Be there for CRUNCH TIME!

  36. This process could take awhile…
    still backing team, and families..
    team in opponents gyms will hear it..however..fight harder!!

  37. BACKBEAT…you are right..benjy went over this coming scenario with guys and their families…knew the circus
    UH MBB just go out and fight like warriors
    there is still ways to work with and lessen possible penalties
    have to have new insiders help this team
    they deserve the best !!
    Go Bows!!
    Bows against the Insiders!!

  38. I just watched the late news reports and from what I can tell, we still don’t know what the heck is going on! If I heard right then UH has 90 days to protest the letter from the NCAA. That means the team this year SHOULD be able to play in Big West tournament and hopefully NCAAs after that!

    I say SHOULD because I hoping and praying the UH administration not stupid enough to not use the 90 days. I would not put it past UH administration to surrender immediately and get it over with right now but that would be so unfair to these guys. Please, please, please UH do the right thing and put in your protest.

    If the allegations is that bad, then everybody can suffer for it starting next season and at least everybody know whats on the table. Not fair to this year’s team to pay the price after all they have done to now.

  39. Chuck….yes Benjy is right…haven’t these guys suffered and their families enough? Absolutely no heart..no aloha to punish this year’s team…Benjy was entrusted by Ben Jay and admin to salvage this team and season…look what they have done..gotten national recognition by espn for wins over pitt, nebraska and colorado..Benjy won hugh duram mid major coach of year award…hawaii news now..SA.. just on rampage to defame Benjy.personally..yet he and team take high road..just play ball..win and make thousands of UH MB fans happy..

    really no class, and total waste of time and taxpayer monies by hiring alabama legal team if they are willing to throw current team and coaches under the bus..
    Chuck you know that North Carolina would fight tooth and nail to lessen blow
    would suspect termination of gib , akana, and having fotu depart was the big ammo to please ncaa..if not why even hire that law firm?
    If UH does not appeal and fight this thing all the way through..and who knows what accused parties might do..little ole UH MBB program..you are right and Backbeat too…fight for innocent parties.

    get together with legal team and listen to pleas from Fans, athletes nd families..
    otherwise, hawaiinews now, SA, And BOR leakers..inslder UH sources…cofidentiality…no integrity..
    wonder that athlete or families don’t have legal recourse

    Chuck..will show what power that be is truly if they don’ t do what is right for Betterment of Student Athletes..remember president and chancellor’s quotes?
    We shall see
    UH my alma mater…however will never support inside source, character assination entities that destroy young people’s dreams

    hope team comes out stronger..and wins a bunch
    come on UH fight and finish strong for a money making UH sport with 14 great young men and a sacrificing coaching staff!!

    Get it right!!

    Go Bows!
    Pro bono friend of team could help them..

  40. UH MBB program fan favorite…rush to kill the momentum and interest now?
    Hey…look at other schools and athletes with similar allegations and take that as how to proceed to appease ncaa..
    I am really curious how gib, akana, and fotu will counter to clear their names..
    I don’t think this thing will be over quickly..ones tire of getting hammered if really justify actions and can defend clear names..
    reversal..would be historic.
    I just hate it when SA and Hawaii news now jump on UH MBB ..especially when alleged parties are gone
    UH MBB TEAM or families fight ,..for right..we fans backing your sons up!!
    Go Bows!!

    All the moreso ..what a battle with LBSU tomorrow…hope team is focused..very sure they will take high road!!

  41. When they say level 1 violations, I cannot bring myself to accept that what we did is as bad as North Carolina. Of course, we don’t know the exact charges but from what we know……

  42. BigFan: That is where counsel comes in, that Alabama firm and UH general.. if for Betterment of student Athletes, they should have plan in place, to counter allegations.. we don’t know.. yet.. If due diligence.. maybe, UH will handle this so really soften blow to UH MBB program..that post season ban, that is a stickler.. yes, use as test cases, and legal team allude to in appeals, what about N. Carolina, or Texas A&M, or MIami, or Kentucky.. etc.. or St Mary’s loss of institutional control, 4 year probation, limit scholarship, and recruiting window, areas, and Still Get to play in NIT and NCAA’s.. for ongoing, problem of several years.. recruiting. major things..

    BigFan.. that is why I say, JMO.. this should be touchstone, test case.. How UH counsel, and any individual parties, with their counsel, go to battle, to defend, and counter.. If UH has a great plan of action in place.. they could save UH MBB from post season bans.. that would be a definite winner. and if alleged wrongdoers. cleared up their names.. that would be even better.. MBB.. a money make.. and growing interest .. don’t want to deflate it.. !
