Allen named Big West Player of the Week

The University of Hawai’i basketball team’s most thrilling victory of this season was recognized with a Big West Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week Award on Monday.

Senior forward Noah Allen was announced as this week’s honoree by the Big West. He scored a season-high 25 points, including the game-tying layup as time expired in regulation, in the Warriors’ record-setting 114-107 overtime victory over Long Beach State on Saturday at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Allen shot 10 for 16 from the field, and also contributed four rebounds and three assists. Hawai’i trailed 91-89 with 3.1 seconds remaining when Allen took an inbounds pass near mid-court and then drove straight to the basket for the game-tying score. He scored 20 points in the second half and overtime to lead the Warriors’ rally from a 13-point deficit midway through the second half.

The 114 points is the most scored by a Hawai’i team in a conference game, dating back to UH’s tenure in the Western Athletic Conference from 1979-2012.

Allen is the first Hawai’i player this season to receive the Big West’s weekly honor.

The Warriors will remain at home for two conference games this week: CSUN on Wednesday, and UC Davis on Saturday. Both games start at 7 p.m. at the Sheriff Center.

  1. Congratulations to Noah and the team! I really hope this means he is out of slumping and ready to lead this team the rest of the season.

  2. Indeed. Congratulations to Noah and the team!
    Just the begining.
    We had a good game plan. “Get after it!”
    Go Bows !

  3. The 5 guys I would pick to start next game are Brock, Leland Green, Noah Allen, Gibson J. and Jack Purchase. I would like to see how Sheriff can be as the energy guy off the bench like he did last year. Zig and Ido gotta be ready against the bigger teams. Owies and Lewis can be the emergency if the other guards get in foul trouble.
