UH hoops guard Jawato gets Big West honor

  • Jamm Aquino
    SPT - Hawaii's Brandon Jawato sinks his 7th three-pointer over UC Riverside's Dayton Boddie during first-half action of a men's college basketball game between the UC Riverside Highlanders and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday

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.
