Banquet Bonus: Jankovic makes a guest appearance

Stefan Jankovic had good reason not to attend the 2016 University of Hawai’i Basketball Awards Banquet – he was off-island, training for upcoming workouts with professional teams.

After signing a contract with the Miami Heat, and then playing the 2016-17 season in the NBA Development League, Jankovic made a guest appearance at the 2017 UH Basketball Awards Banquet last week at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

“I’ve just been tanning on the beach, the usual, same old Janks,” Jankovic said of spending some of his off-season time in Hawai’i.

Jankovic started the 2016-17 season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, then his rights were traded to the Erie BayHawks. He was injured for most of his time at Sioux Falls, but finished strong with Erie, averaging 13.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Jankovic said he is currently a free agent, and is weighing his options for this summer.


  1. Janks graduated last May along with Quincy and Dyrbe, good job !

  2. None the worse for wear.
    (I don’t know what that means.)
    But Janks is looking good ! Good to have him back !

  3. Hugh Hogland verbal commit to Portland. Colin Russell to UC Davis, Bergersen to BYU.

  4. what’s going on ganot…are any players visiting this weekend?….maybe he’s more silent about his prospects as how we knew every player gib was going after

  5. maybe Janks makes an NBA roster this year and gets some playing time. as we wait for news of recruits … …
    Where’s our 7 footer(s) ?

  6. A UH coach said they lost a couple, could be the ones to the Aggie and mormon schools ? Cows and the other 53 degree weather now.

  7. They lost Russell to the defending BW champion, a head coach who played in the NBA and a school close to his hometown. No shame there. Don’t think he’s a game changer, but he’s a solid BW-type post and would have been an upgrade to the roster.
    I think Bergesen basically “tripped” UH, but sometimes you take a chance in the hopes a recruit sees something he likes here.
    I don’t know if Shaver is in play, but he hasn’t exactly been garnering high-level interest (Portland, Seattle, Northern Arizona, UIC).
    Interesting that Bibbins is going to Utah, and Prince to … Detroit?

  8. It keeps getting worse … Maxhuni opts for Long Beach State. UH batting 0-for-3. Next man up …

  9. Kendall Smith to Oklahoma State and Bibbins to Utah are major upgrades for them. I hope the UH coaches have plan B and C ready since we are missing out on the first wave of visits. At this point we need to look at grad transfers to make a run at the tourney next year.

  10. Very worrying recruiting cycle.
    If you aint worried you aint a UH fan. Hoping for some gems somehow.

  11. Plan b and c cant be good..sounds like f
