Thomas gets a workout in Summer League

Mike Thomas showed up for his Hawaii College Basketball Summer League game on Saturday night hoping to get a good workout. He got a full 40 minutes worth.

Thomas, who is preparing for his senior season with the University of Hawai’i basketball team, scored 26 points although his National Fire Protection Co. team lost to Clark Hatch Fitness, 103-90.

It was the first Summer League game of this year for Thomas, a 6-foot-7 forward who will be the lone returning starter for UH in the 2016-17 season. Only five players showed up for National Fire, including 2016 Kaiser High School graduates Chance Kalaugher and Keoua Mahiko.

“It’s a great thing,” Thomas said of playing the entire game. “Some conditioning – I gotta work on that.”

Thomas said he will continue to play in Summer League games, as long as his schedule allows.

“It’s not as competitive as it has been in the past, or at least this first game wasn’t,” he said. “But it’s still working on your game, still perfecting your craft.”

Thomas was the only current UH player to appear on Saturday night. Some of the other players from the current roster are expected to join the Summer League after July 5, when summer classes at UH start.

In the Saturday’s second game, Electricians Hawaii remained atop the Summer League standings at 5-0 with a 108-92 win over Wealth Strategy Partners. Electricians Hawaii now has a 17-game winning streak dating to last season.

  1. Thanks for the highlights, warrior insider.
    From another forum, Janks highlights:

  2. IT WAS MIKE Thomas who Really (came closer to) ‘schooling Maryland in the NCAAs….

    But Clearly, Janks did his Homework, too
    Getting Creds for ‘schooling’ Maryland’s DIAMOND STONE
    And his teammates in yesterday’s NBA Dev League game

    Next Up versus NYKNICKS @ 9am Today on NBATV

  3. Good to see Mike already back in town, and competing. It’s his team this year, and Hawaii is fortunate to have such an outstanding student-athlete leading the way.

    Looks like Sheriff may still be in Europe, with Sweden’s Under-20 team. Check this link:

  4. That’s some shot. Ever try to hit the backboard from 3/4 court, even with one arm ?

  5. Hard to believe Durant is going to Golden State. They won’t have that many balls (touches) per game to go around to the shooters on that team.

  6. GSWarriors have Expanded CAP ROOM
    Tougher with Better BIGS Like KD
    He gets The Bucks And Maybe a Championship Ring or Two

    But gotta withstand The Growth and Improvement of LeBron, Kyrie and Love…
    + ADD One or Two (Why Not with The Higher Cap?)

    Limited Time Offer!

    ————————–
    Nice Shot Sheriff…
    WE Would Practice from The Farther Free Throw Line just about Every Day
    4-8 hours on the court Every Day = MY Idea of GYM Rats
    Damien HS’s BOBBY Anjo — I Swear — COULD HIT 1 of 4 from The FAR Free Throw Line

  7. Some new UH players may be playing tonight, per Artie on his show last Friday.

  8. or after today, per warrior insider ?

  9. Hope We get to see New Warriors Reports (Summer School/Summer League)
    As Soon As Tomorrow/Saturday Night…

    Lookin’ for Good News…

    Like Can/Will Eran & Co. “Grow” (Develop)
    The NEXT Dellavedova OR Even S.Curry
    Starting THIS Season?

  10. Gibson to play tonight.

  11. Summer league update: Johnson scored 16 for Electricians Hawaii last night, while Jankovic did not play for the second game in a row for the Heat today.

    Not sure what to make of Jankovic’s status since only the five starters did not play, and Jankovic was not even listed in the box score as a DNP. He was dressed for the game, though. Guess we’ll see what happens in Las Vegas.
