Kamehameha Hawai’i is one of my favorite small schools to make a run in the HHSAA (Hawaii High School Athletic Association) playoffs. I was able to evaluate their team at the 2nd Annual I Mua Invitational hosted at Kamehameha Kapalama. One prospect who stood out was Senior Guard Keanu Huihui.
Although initially listed as a post prospect, Huihui has showcased impressive guard skills, demonstrating her ability to handle the ball, attack, and guard from the perimeter. Additionally, I was particularly impressed by her activity on the glass and her ability to hold her own in protecting the paint.
Having traveled extensively across the country to evaluate talent from all corners of the globe, I can confidently say that, after careful evaluation, Huihui possesses the necessary skills to compete at a smaller Division 1 program. Ultimately on signing day, she made it official to stay home at the University of Hawaii-Hilo.
This commitment is truly a remarkable one for the Vulcans, as Huihui brings with her a towering presence, standing at an impressive 6 feet tall. Her exceptional court awareness, three-level scoring ability, and high basketball IQ further solidify her potential as a valuable asset to the team. I believe that she will make a significant impact as a freshman in the upcoming season.
