HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior basketball team had a glaring need in the backcourt last season, and head coach Eran Ganot is doing his best to add depth to the point guard position.
Today, the Warriors announced the signing of guard Eddie Stansberry to a national letter of intent for the 2018-19 season. The 6-foot-3 Stansberry is a junior college transfer with two years left of eligibility.
Stansberry recently completed a two-year run with the City of College of San Francisco. An all-conference and all-state selection, Stansberry averaged 13.0 points, 4.3 rebound, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game while shooting 45 percent from the floor. He also drilled 104 three-pointers at a 43 percent clip.
"We're extremely excited to welcome Eddie to our basketball 'ohana," Ganot said in a press release. "Eddie's an elite shooter, talented scorer, and a fierce competitor who comes from one of the best junior college programs in California. With his work ethic, character and winning pedigree we expect him to represent Hawai'i basketball at the highest level."
