Ballin' Is A Habit isn't hearting Hawaii

From the BIAH site:

"... Maybe this was my fault. I was pretty sure Hawaii had the talent, skill, and experience to become the best team in the WAC. But through the first four games, they have looked more like a middling mid-major than the conference powerhouse I expected them to be. Not many teams in the country allow their opponents to shoot more foul shots than the Warriors. Their opponents are currently shooting 79% against them. The 19-point loss to Gonzaga on a "neutral court" in Canada is one thing, but losing to Eastern Washington by 15 at home isn't ..."
The free throw differential is a -3 (102-105) and 67% to 79%.

Plus, UH is holding opponents to 39% shooting, 27% from long distance and those are winning numbers.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Eastern Washington is turning out to be much tougher than expected, with a new head coach and a handful of new players. EW also played Gonzaga in Spokane and lost by just eight points. 

The development of a consistent outside shooter to pair with Zane Johnson is need though.
