Rainbow Wahine sign three for next season

Size and depth were recruiting priorities for Hawaii coach Laura Beeman and the Rainbow Wahine basketball team added both to next year’s roster with its three-member signing class.

Wednesday marked the opening of the early signing period for basketball and UH announced the signings of 6-foot-4 center Lauren Rewers, 6-foot-3 forward Mackenzie Clinch Hoycard and 5-foot-10 guard Jayden Alexander today.

Rewers averaged 12.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.9 blocks and 1.5 assists per game at Lake City High School in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She enters her senior season as a two-time first-team all-Inland Empire League selection and holds the league record with 10 blocks in a game.

Hoycard gives for the Wahine a “stretch four” with the ability to shoot from the perimeter as well as provide height inside. She is averaging 20.8 points per game for CBC Basketball Club in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. She’ll add to the Australian presence on a UH roster that includes freshmen Courtney Middap and Amy Atwell.

Alexander gives UH another scorer from the wing and averaged 18.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 2.2 steals as a junior at Monroe High School in Washington. She also placed seventh in the high jump at the state track and field championships.

The Rainbow Wahine are in Los Angeles in advance of Friday’s season opener at USC. They’ll also play at CSU Bakersfield on Sunday.
