Saturday’s Summer League results

The early weeks of the Hawai’i College Basketball Summer League are usually about surviving with diminished rosters. Saturday night was no exception.

Electricians Hawaii and its seven players beat Clark Hatch Fitness and its six players, 97-87, in the first game at Manoa Valley District Park Gym. In the second game, National Fire Protection Co. edged a coach-less Chosen Few team, 76-75.

Junior guard Dyrbe Enos was the only current University of Hawai’i player to suit up on Saturday night. He scored nine points and dished out four assists while starting at point guard for the Electricians Hawaii team.

Former UH-Hilo guard Aukai Wong led Electricians Hawaii with 28 points, followed by Leif Rodney and Max Friedman with 18 each.

The game was close for the first 35 minutes, then Electricians pulled away from the depleted Clark Hatch Fitness team in the final five minutes.

Two players who are turning back the clock this summer led Clark Hatch Fitness. Former Chaminade forward Leon Ballard led the team with 27 points, and former UH forward Phil Martin scored 23. Both players played collegiate basketball in the early 2000s.

In the second game of the night, Antonio Washington made a hook shot in the lane with five seconds remaining to give National Fire Protection its second consecutive buzzer-beating win of the summer.

Former Chaminade guard DeAndre Haskins led National Fire Protection with 28 points; Chris Summers, who is aiming to join UH as a walk-on player, scored 10 points.

Matt Ching led Chosen Few with 23 points, and Kyle Pape added 17. Veteran Summer League player John Lane served as player/coach.

Summer League games will continue on Tuesday, although the current UH players are scheduled to arrive after the 4th of July weekend.

  1. Nice highlights.

  2. Russell Turner gets a new five year contract at Irvine. That’s what getting to the NCAA (first time in school history) can do for a coach, plus a few other things or un-things.

  3. NCAA…just have to wait and see.. with UH MBB..right?

  4. Glad Benjy still here, to see his team try to make NCAA tournament.
    Gib too.

  5. Summers has got to pick it up a little.

  6. Brad Autry to Southern Illinois and Senque to Florida Gulf Coast, per McInnis.

  7. Brandon Loyd, Hawaii resident, Brad Autry, on a moment’s notice , came here to help, and Senque, still junk, we did not get to see him work some Que magic, in getting those athletes for Benjy Frenzy ball, probably That Big, with great Mom, yes sir, no sir, high academic rebounder supremes and the shooting win out of JC who would have signed.

    Well , glad they got jobs, .. Brandon Loyd, being Kamaaina, I think he is still here, he was a volunteer, last year prior to Benjy Bows year, saw him sitting on Bench with Akana Spearman, Davis and Christian’s senior year.

    Best wishes and thanks Coach Taylor, who knows? Maybe things work out.,. Benjy be coaching UH again? could be.. And to Brad, Senque and Brandon, helped UH, out of a horrible situation, almost make the NCAA’s, if Eran, can win 19 games, I would be happy, however the Real Battle, the Finals? UH vs Gib vs NCAA.. and etc, etc, etc.

  8. Brandon works for the ACW Insurance Group in downtown. They specialize in commercial , home owners , auto insurance and employer solutions.

  9. Wish them all well. Go Bows !

  10. Remember how folks used call Fibs the used car salesman, but it’s really Taylor.

  11. Fibs got what he wanted. Got Alika to step down at Kalaheo. What a complainer.

  12. The Kalaheo principal says it’s not about only winning, which Alika was very good at. She is wanting to move forward with Positive Coaching Alliance standards, character development and better communication. Also, there were apparently complaints about favoritism, but you get that about a lot of other coaches too (SA 6-30-15).

  13. Where the heck did you get info about “Fibs” being the parent who was a complainer? Please post the link or cite specifics if you have knowledge. If Gib ends up being the Kalaheo coach, maybe you are on to something.

    My guess would be other parents of the kids who were “bigs” and had to sit behind Alika’s freshman son. Gib’s son is guard from what I can tell watching the Kalaheo games.

    No matter who the complainers are, that is shame on them. The team won the state f’in championship!

  14. Parents think their kids are all world welcome to the real world Gibber

  15. Stef Jovanovic is the lone men’s basketball player named to the Big West all-academic teams. The women had 4 players.
