Golf: Nakagawa chewing up the competition

KAILUA-KONA — Blake Nakagawa loves looking at his expanding collection trophies and medals, although the 6-year-old golfer has to look up to do so because the trophy rack is set up high enough to avoid Lyman, his 10-month-old golden retriever, who loves nothing more than to chew on the awards.

College basketball: In spirited showing, Vulcans down Chaminade

As penultimate performances go, UH-Hilo’s men’s basketball team put on quite a show.
The Vulcans put an emphatic end to a six-game losing streak Thursday night, beating Chaminade 94-86 at Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium.
Relying primarily on the contributions of just seven players, Randan Berinobis was all over the court with 25 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
“That was as gutty a performance as this team has ever had,” coach GE Coleman said in a release. “It would have been easy to fold up shop after all this group has been through this month and all season (injuries), but they stepped up and played at a very high emotional level against a very good Chaminade team.”
