  1. Summer league basketball coming to an end.
    ——————————————————————————————————

    Laura on the BC show today, said she lost a recruit to Boise St due to the cost of attendance issue. Could that be Ella Fotu or one of the other freshmen ? Someone said Boise St is offering $5,000 as their COA stipend, but i don’t know if that is for all their sports.

    Wahine having a basketball camp, Aug. 15-16, open girls and boys.

  2. Here’s where this COA is confusing and can be used to simply out bid other schools that may not have similar financial resources. If it is based basically on the cost of living in a certain city or area how is Boise able to give more in COA than Hawaii? The Hawaii football team will be given a little more than $4000 per player per year and Boise can give $5000 per athlete? Unless Hawaii is not at the limit set by the NCAA according to whatever formula they use.

  3. Alabama will offer a COA of $4,172 for in-state athletes and $5,386 for out-of-state.

  4. Most of the basketball team visited Waikiki Elementary on Friday morning to read books to the students (SA, 8-8-15).

    ” It’s something we look forward to doing more of,” said first-year UH coach Eran Ganot. “Activities like this, No. 1, is for the kids, and anything we can do to give back to them and to the community we’re all for. And it’s great for our program, great for our guys, to continue to remind them they’re in positions of influence and abilities to affect lives in a positive way.”

    Gib started this last year.

  5. Thanks islandman,

    that is first class of you.. no matter what happened with Gib , and we still have to see how plays out and might affect MBB for awhile.
    That is something I Really Appreciated about Gib’s tenure, the Hawaii Culture, canoe races, hit the Waikiki Beach for training, which Riley and Nash did too… As well as that Give Back to Hawaii, by reading, and a Lot of the guys getting involved in community.

    Eran, very good to acknowledge that too…The youth, they look to the MBB teams and other student athletes. as The “Go to Guys and Gals” something they aspire to be !
    Hmm…would have been real nice to see Ella Fotu here.. even better if whole Fotu family including Isaac, will eventually come back and visit.. very, very nice family the Fotu Ohana !

    Go Bows. and let’s hope ALL UH sports have great 2015-16 year !
    🙂
