The Hawai’i basketball summer league has hit full swing with a total of 10 current University of Hawai’i basketball players hitting the hardwood at Manoa Valley District Park.
Among the ‘Bows, redshirt freshman Brocke Stepteau is getting his first game action since enrolling at the University last fall.
The 5’9″ Dallas, Texas native has been praised for his ball handling and vision during his time with Grantco Pacific, where he as averaging 15 points-per-game.
After redshirting in 2014-2015, Stepteau is anxiously awaiting his chance to get game action in the Stan Sheriff Center “I’m extremely excited. I’ve been working all summer, really all my life. I’m just happy to be a part of the team I’m just gonna work hard every day and give everything I have.” Stepteau said.
“When my time is called and I’m gonna go out there and give it my all, but more importantly I’m happy to just be out there with you guys bring all my energy and do what I can to help the team win.”
Two coaching changes were tumultuous for a freshman getting acclimated to college life, but Stepteau sees a positive in learning from three head coaches: “I do because I think they all coach a little differently it so I’m ready for everything. I think everybody on the team is prepared all the coaches had different styles, now we have coach Ganot and he’s different than everybody else but he’s definitely gonna help us get to where we need to be.”
Stepteau and Grantco Pacific will play National Fire Protection Co. Saturday at 6:00 pm.
