The Hawaii basketball team has signed Larry Lewis, a 6-foot-2 guard out of Odessa (Texas) College.
Lewis averaged 11.1 points on 49.1 percent shooting from the field for the Wranglers, who went 27-6 in the recently completed season. He shot 40.7 percent on 3-pointers, though just 55.4 percent at the free-throw line. He played primarily off the ball, contributing 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
“I’m just honored and appreciative of the university giving me this opportunity to come play for them,” said Lewis, who chose UH over Portland State. “When I came on an official visit (to Hawaii), I fell in love with it. I got a good vibe from the whole coaching staff.”
Lewis, who previously played at Division I Texas-San Antonio, has two years of eligibility remaining. He is the sixth player to sign with the Rainbow Warriors for the 2016-17 season. In addition, UH also recently added walk-ons Brian Garrett and Darryl Matthews out of California junior colleges.
UH has two more scholarships to assign for next season. The spring signing period has ended, but players can still be added with scholarship agreements.
