Kameron Ng, the state’s high school player of the year, will be joining the University of Hawaii men’s basketball team.
Ng confirmed his commitment on Twitter Sunday night.
Ng, a senior guard for Saint Francis School, will be joining as a preferred walk-on.
Ng was named the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s All-State basketball Player of the Year for the 2018-19 season. The selection was based on voting by coaches and media.
Ng averaged more than 24 points per game despite often playing with an ankle ailment. Star-Advertiser reporter Paul Honda noted that Ng missed only three weeks of what was supposed to be a six-week recovery period for the ankle injury. Ng scored 40 points against Mid-Pacific; 27 and 24 points against ILH and state champion Maryknoll, and 29, 25 and 22 against ‘Iolani.
