Late with Kicks Analysis 2016

Late with Kicks Analysis 2016

Yeah, I know Pulpconnection’s annual analysis of shoes worn by teams making the Big Dance is late. But this year with the University of Hawaii Warriors making the tournament, it’s been a fun ride to watch the madness. As usual, Nike has the preponderance of teams in the tournament, but one of their representatives is […]

Rod Bobbitt’s Shoe of Choice

When it comes down to the wire, Warrior guard Roderick Bobbitt’s game shoe of choice is the Under Armour Curry 2 “Suit & Tie.” Black and white with red highlights, this shoe has been on Bobbitt’s feet during crunch time. Rod’s worn many Curry colorways this season and recently has gone from the low cut […]

Filipovich Highlights

Gotta hand it to UH reserve guard Niko Filipovich in the Warrior win over Long Beach. Yeah, he missed both this long distance bombs, but he took the shots without hesitation. The close misses kept the Beach defenders honest and couldn’t slack off on defense. But of course, #2’s highlight was his closing seconds drive […]

Q and His Supermoons

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! […]

Not James Daniel III

Not James Daniel III

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 […]

Stream Bigwest.tv to AppleTV?

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 […]

Adidas Rose 773

Rainbow Warriors Wear Roses

So it seems some signature style is coming to the kicks of the UH Men’s Basketball team. The Adidas-affiliated Rainbow Warriors are wearing Derrick Rose’s 773 sneakers in the upcoming season. This team shoe comes in a multitude of colors including the Warrior-matching forest/running white. Former Bow Rod Flemings would be proud.

What’s Isaac Fotu’s Secret?

UH men’s basketball freshman forward, Isaac Fotu, has a great fro going on. Couple his “Fear the Fro” moniker with his rebounding prowess, and you got an instant fan favorite. But what’s #42’s secret? Could it be this? I know nothing about chia seeds, but this dietary supplement is getting some attention. And be sure […]

Hauns Brereton on Fire with His Red Kicks

Will Hauns Brereton keep his fiery Adidas when UH’s Big West season begins? Okay, so these red and black Adidas don’t match the UH unis, but superstition says that if you got the hot hand, you keep doing what you been doing. If Hauns can score 47 points a game then he needs to keep […]

Hauns’ Highlight

No lie. You didn’t see this coming for the UH Men’s basketball team. A promising start to their season, solid mid season, then five straight losses to close out their WAC stay. The WAC tournament was just a formality. One and done, right? Then there was that tournament “W” against Idaho who executed Hawaii to […]
