Advertiser Staff

Senior forward Roderick Flemings won the Art Woolaway Most Outstanding Player award at the UH men's basketball awards banquet tonight at the Hale Koa Hotel.

Flemings led the team in scoring with 16.6 points per game, and ranked second in rebounds with 6.2 per game.

In a game against Cal Poly in February, Flemings scored 39 points, which was the most scored by a Hawai'i player in the history of the Sheriff Center.

He finished his two-year career at Hawai'i with 964 points, which ranks 17th on the program's all-time scoring list.

Flemings also won the Most Outstanding Player award last year. Only six other former 'Bows have won the award in back-to-back years: Tom Henderson, Tony Wells, Reggie Cross, Anthony Carter, Predrag Savovic and Julian Sensley.

Junior point guard Hiram Thompson won four awards: Best Playmaker, Captain Award, Best Free Throw Shooter and Ah Chew Goo Most Inspirational Award.

Thompson, Brandon Adams and Adhar Mayen shared the Most Inspirational Award.

Paul Campbell won Best Defensive Player, Petras Balocka won Best Rebounder, and Ji Xiang won the Academic Award.
