How many years have you been assistant coach at BYU Hawaii?

I have been the Head Assistant Coach for BYU-Hawaii for 5 years. 

How did you become an assistant coach at BYU Hawaii?

I played at BYU-Hawaii for 4 years, and later decided to get a Masters of Science Degree from the University of Hawaii.  Because I attended and played basketball for BYU-Hawaii it was a good fit for me to coach at BYU-Hawaii.  

With Ken Wagner as head coach of BYU Hawaii, what have you been able to learn about coaching a college team?

I have learned that coaching isn’t only done on the basketball court; but done off the court also.  Basketball is just a small part of these student athletes lives.  As coaches, we are preparing them to be good citizens in their respective communities. 

How would you describe BYU Hawaii’s performance this season?

We had another successful season.  We lost in the first round of the West Region NCAA National Tournament in Seattle, Washington.  There were times during this basketball season where we felt the team played as well as any team in the nation, but there were times when we did not play up to our potential

Did the team performance above or below team expectations?

Although we had a successful season, we as coaches and players felt we should have been playing for the NCAA National Championship. 

With a number of key seniors leaving this season, what should people expected from BYU-Hawaii for the 2005-06 season?

I am really excited about next year’s season.  We have a lot of good under classmen returning from this year’s team.  We have some very talented players coming in, so I can’t to get started.

BYU-Hawaii has a strong connection with the Pacific Islands and some of their basketball players have come to BYU Hawaii. Could you describe the type of players that come from the Pacific Islands?

The players that come from the Pacific Islands are very special.  They work very hard on and off the court.  These players also bring a lot of talent to the team.&
