Isaac Fotu
Tall Black Isaac Fotu (203-F-93), and Tall Ferns Jordan Hunter and Jelena Vucinic starred for their respective US college teams, helping steer University of Hawaii, Southeast Missouri University and Louisianna Tech to tough victories.

Fotu enjoyed a breakout game for University of Hawaii, helping them to a hard-fought 71-66 win over North Dakota.

On a night when the home crowd was encouraged to sport Fotu fros, the young Kiwi came off the bench for a career-high 17 points (8/12 FG, 1/2 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks, as the Rainbows ran up a 42-27 halftime lead and held on.

Hawaii improved to 4-1 for the season and next visit Nevada Las Vegas on December 1.

Hunter made a lay-up with 4.2 seconds remaining to get the Redhawks up 52-51 over Arkansas State. Her basket was SEMOs only lead of the game, as they rallied from as many as 16 points down in the first half.

Hunter had five points, six assists and two steals to guide her team to 2-2, and their next outing is against Houston tomorrow.

Vucinic led her Techsters with 17 points (2/4 3pt, 7/7 FT), four assists and four steals in a 65-63 win over Central Arkansas. The win was Louisianas first of the season and the loss was also Central Arkansas first.

Tech (1-3) next take on Ole Miss on December 1.

Meanwhile, fellow Kiwis Rob Loe and Steve Adams discovered the harsh reality of big-time college basketball, both going scoreless and tasting defeat at the hands of highly ranked opponents. Loes University of St Louis fell 59-73 to #13 Kansas, while Adams Pittsburgh Panthers lost 62-67 to #4 Michigan.

For Pittsburgh (4-1), the result was their first loss of the season.

But Tall Fern guard Erin Rooney helped Fordham University remain unbeaten, scoring 14 points, eight rebounds and two steals in a 55-48 win over San Francisco.

Saints' future uncertain - 2 days ago
Kevin Braswell will be back at the Wellington Saints next season, provided he has a team to coach. Saints owner Nick Mills confirmed on Thursday the 38-year-old American had re-signed on a two-year deal, with an option for both parties to get out after one season if they wanted to. Braswell guided the Saints to back-to-back National Basketball League titles in his first two seasons in charge, including a perfect 20-0 season this year. But Mills has been left miffed by a proposed rule chan...   [read more]
