Drammeh is the team’s top returning scorer and was named the Big West’s Best Hustle Player last season.  The Rainbow Warriors also welcomes the return of senior forward Jack Purchase who was the Big West’s Best Sixth Player. Purchase enters the season ranked ninth at UH in career three-pointers made (122) and attempted (341).  Hawai'i also welcomes five newcomers this year, highlighted by 7-footers Dawson Carper and Owen Hulland and junior college sharpshooter Eddie Stansberry.
