University of Hawaii men’s basketball assistant coach Mike Thomas will be our featured guest on tomorrow’s ESPN Honolulu “Fan Friday: Talk Story” session.
Thomas joined the UH coaching staff this past summer. The Woodland Hills, California native is best known by Rainbow Warrior fans as a starter on Hawaii’s 2015-16 NCAA Tournament team. That team went a program-best 28-6 for the season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament-second round for the first time in school history. In that second-round game against Maryland, Thomas led Hawaii with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Thomas is the winningest player in program history.
As an assistant coach, Thomas oversees the development of the team’s wing players, with a focus on rebounding and the transition game. He also is involved in recruiting, player development and the team’s strength program.
Hosted by Dave Kawada, this exclusive Zoom interview will be available on our ESPN Honolulu Facebook page starting at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.
