UH hoops guard Jawato gets Big West honor

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:38 p.m. HST, Jan 07, 2013

Redshirt freshman guard Brandon Jawato today became the first Big West Conference Player of the Week recipient for the Hawaii men's basketball team.

Jawato went 7-for-7 on 3-pointers, all in the first half, for a career-high 21 points in UH's 76-61 win over UC Riverside on Saturday. He tied the Big West and UH records for 3-point makes without a miss, and set the UH record for 3-pointers made by a freshman.

He helped establish UH (9-5 overall) its first 3-0 start to league play since the 2001-02 season.

Jawato also had 11 points in UH's 90-88 win over Cal State Fullerton on Thursday, including two big 3-pointers in the second half. For the week, he went 9-for-10 from beyond the arc, and is 12-for-15 on 3s in three BWC games.

The 6-foot-4 Jawato, of El Segundo, Calif., now has a team-high 19 3-pointers on the season and is shooting 52.8 percent from long range.
