Signing period comes,
goes for men’s
basketball team

By Pat Bigold


The last day for basketball players to sign binding national letters of intent passed yesterday with the University of Hawaii not signing another player.

But during the period that began April 12, the Rainbows signed four players: two from the junior college ranks, one from a New England prep school and one from the Israeli pro league.

The team is now at its maximum allowable 13 scholarships.

The four who signed are Haim Shimonovich of Rishon Le Zion, Israel, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound center-power forward; David Hilton, a 5-11, 145-pound point guard from The Hyde School in Woodstock, Conn.; Mindaugus Burneika, 6-7, 225-pound forward from Weatherford College in Texas, and Ricky Terrell, 6-3, 190-pound point guard from Santa Monica College in California.

Dennis Williams, a 6-9 center-forward from Skyline Junior College (Calif.), who visited Hawaii the same weekend as Terrell last month, said yesterday he has signed with an incoming Western Athletic Conference member, the University of Nevada-Reno.

Hawaii will return three starters: guard Predrag Savovic, power forward Troy Ostler and small forward Nerijus Puida. Ostler and Puida will be seniors while Savovic will be a junior.
