Hawaiian honeymoon is over

Hawaii coach Bob Nash couldn't have liked reading this in Ferd Lewis' Honolulu Advertiser column on Sunday:

If the University of Hawai'i ends up making a men's basketball coaching change -- and it is getting increasingly harder to see how it won't -- then last night's game could have been the exclamation point.

The Rainbow Warriors hit more than an artistic low in the 102-89 non-conference loss to Cal Poly, they did it statistically as well.

With some of the remnants of a crowd of 2,669 perversely counting it down, the 'Bows had an opponent ring up 100 points on them for the first time in the 16-year history of the Stan Sheriff Center.

The BracketBuster game was just another embarrassment for Nash's 9-17 team, which is tied for last in the WAC.

Nash starred at Hawaii and was a longtime assistant there before taking over in 2007, but after receiving a one-year extension this offseason, his team has been rocked by injuries and the suspension of Dwain Williams.

The Warriors have relied on transfers and do have talent. They've lost eight in a row, but Roderick Flemings was still named WAC player of the week today after scoring a school-record 39 points at the Stan Sheriff Center in the Cal Poly game.

Flemings, however, is a senior. Will Nash follow him out of Hawaii?
