19 to 9 on turnovers and 11 to 3 on 3 pointers made, is a significant stat. we need to control bad passes and protect the ball. as soon as we decided to launch the 3's, the tide shifted to cal fullerton. we definitely need to work on our perimeter shooting.
idaho state has some big guys down low but also have pure shooters. its still early in the season but am happy to see some of the bench guys stepped up their game.
lets go warriors!

How about starting Nitoto, Fleming, Amis, Adams and Lutu? Maybe a quicker team. Lasha and Petras would provide the spark off the bench. The Bow"s flex motion offense should be called the"can it get any slower-motion offense", it might lull the opponent to sleep Hope Thompson gets better soon because the Bows need him badly.

Thought the team would be decent this year. Unless we get better guard play, we'll going to struggle. Nitoto plays with the ball too much and takes too long to set up the team. Fleming and Adams looks like they'll be pretty good and Petras is a banger inside. Amis needs to step it up.

Nitoto dribbles to damn much and the offense has no flow to it

It's because coach Nash does'nt know how to recruit more local kids here in hawaii. He should also give the 2 Hawaii guys on the team a chance. We have talent here in Hawaii.....that's ok Coach Selido will take them all.....he is an awesome coach......

Another one of those "local" first blind bats. The reality is, unlike football, there's almost NO local basketball talent worthy of Div. 1.

Name should sound familiar to local hoop fans...and no surprise he lit up UH..

He was former teammate of Derrick Low at Washington State... showed flashes of brilliance in Pac-10 play... transferred to Cal State Fullerton

Under Nash we could be seeing many record breaking performances. Josh was constantly losing his man and as a team the Bows should have known he would continue to shoot but still no help. It's a record under Nash because no other coach would have allowed the defense to give him so many looks. He is a 6'0" guard who dominated us. Even great shooters will struggle with a hand in their face.

Warriors are a minor league team in a bottom of the barrel league hon./ Do not worry about Nash. We do not.

Exactamundo. Nitoto is not the answer at point guard. There is no penetration, no easy dishes for easy baskets, no drives to the hoop, and his jumper is way too inconsistent. Try Lutu or Pargha at point, move Flemings to two guard. Heck, move Flemings to point guard even. Nitoto needs more seasoning. Also seems like the team does not play with a lot of hustle. Hope Coach Nash can put the pieces together.
