I’ll be going to the Big Dance come March! I’m hoping the Big West Conference champion (Hawaii, wink, wink) makes it to the Sweet 16 in the West regional.

Give the game ball to Quincy “Q” Smith as the Warriors of UH held off the Matadors of CSUN in the final minute. An off-balanced game saw Sai Tummala’s triple put the Warriors back up. As the Matadors defensive pressure mounted, the ball ended up in the hands of freshman Sheriff Drammeh. Oh the drama! […]
This is not James Daniel III of the Howard Bison and the NCAA men’s basketball leading scorer. He dropped 29 points on the Warriors on Saturday night in a UH victory. It looked like the Bison were staying at the Ala Moana Hotel as I saw logoed shirts on hotel guests and what appeared to […]
Although the Hawaii-Wichita St. matchup was my overall favorite game, the best individual highlight came from the Hawaii-Colorado game on Christmas day of the Diamond Head Classic. Colorado’s guard, Askia Booker, was cleared for a break away layup before UH’s 6-2 senior guard, Garrett Nevels, met him at the rim for the rejection. Although I […]
The best basketball game I saw during the holidays has to be Hawaii’s narrow loss to the Wichita State Shockers in the Diamond Head Classic. Ranked #11 in the country, the Shockers’ offensive putback in the closing seconds of overtime sealed UH’s fate. Still though, the Warriors surprisingly went blow for blow in this matchup, […]
If I were still playing basketball, I would definitely wear these LeBron 11 Low Atomic Mango on the court. I love me my full length Max Air and lower cut. Gotta love the bright colors of course and the grey helps tone it down just a bit. If only I still balled…
Is it just me or does anyone else feel a little funny watching the Pacers Lance Stephenson blowing sweetly into the ear of Lebron James? Make sure you unmute the audio track in Vine. Must be the music that’s putting me in the mood as well.
I’ve always been a fan of The Chuckster, and he’s in fine form commenting about the size of San Antonio women. After some backpedaling about his initial comments, Barkley gives in and goes on a roll, much to the entertainment of The Big Aristotle Shaq. “Victoria’s a secret down there,” – Charles Barkley.
Gotta do some research on the best way to stream on-the-road UH basketball games to my television set. Since there’s no national television broadcast, the only option is the live stream available on bigwest.tv. But I don’t want to watch the game on a computer screen. Can the AppleTV stream this content natively? Seems like […]
First watch this video stereotyping the types of players you’ll meet playing pickup basketball. Which player were you? At times, I was Mr. Accessory though for the wrong reasons with ankle braces, knee protection, and foot orthotics. I was a few years removed from the shooting sleeve popularized by Allen Iverson, but I would have […]
Fifteen minutes of spare time is what you need to watch some Magic, Magic Johnson that is. 6-9 point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Great Western Forum. Prime Ticket television. Chick Hearn and Stu Lantz. Showtime. How many of these magical moments did you see unfold?
Can you run from the NBA three-point line to the rim and make a left handed layup in 2.2 seconds? That’s roughly 23 feet of distance to cover while being (lightly) guarded. If you’re 6-8, you can cover that span in about 4 strides like this. Maybe you also need these Oreo-inspired shoes for that […]
