UH award to Robinson

Mike Robinson walked away with the Art Woolaway Most Outstanding Player award at last night's Hawaii Rainbow men's basketball banquet in Waikiki.

The 6-foot-8 senior forward led the 6-20 Rainbows in rebounding (6.5 average) and was second in scoring (11.7 average) to Marquette Alexander. Robinson also had team highs of 38 steals and 33 blocked shots.

The top playmaker award went to junior point guard Johnny White, who played almost every minute of every game and averaged 5.5 assists. White also earned the academic award for his 3.0 grade point average during the season.

Redshirt freshman forward Philipp Czernin, who started 18 of the last 19 games and shot 58 percent from the floor, got the Most Inspirational Award.

Coach Riley Wallace introduced the newest member of the Rainbows' coaching staff, former Alabama-Birmingham assistant Scott Rigot. He replaces Jamie Dixon, who left UH to take the associate head coaching position at Pittsburgh.

HOWARD, BLOCH HONORED: Hawaii basketball standout Raylene Howard, leading scorer in the WAC Pacific Division last season, and Baldwin High School swim star Cheyne Bloch, winner of the 100-meter breaststroke event at the recent Speedo Jr. Western Regionals, are the Honolulu Quarterback Club's female and male Sportspersons of the Month of March, the club announced yesterday.
