By Brian McInnis

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 08, 2013

~~<p>A quick preseason scan up and down the Hawaii men's basketball roster revealed a few logical candidates for the Rainbow Warriors' first Big West Conference player of the week.</p>

Yet it was the young Jawato, and not a member of UH's vaunted frontcourt, who received UH's inaugural BWC weekly honor on Monday after a landmark performance against UC Riverside on Saturday. Jawato tied the Big West and UH records for 3-pointers made without a miss by going 7-for-7 against the Highlanders, all in the first half for a career-high 21 points in a 76-61 win. He had two big second-half 3-pointers among 11 points in UH's 90-88 comeback win over Cal State Fullerton on Thursday.</p>
