'Bows guard Stepteau selected as BWC Player of the Week

Brocke Stepteau was named the Big West Men's Basketball Player of the Week after helping Hawai'i complete a road sweep of UC Davis and Cal State Fullerton to conclude the regular season. It is the first career weekly honor for the senior guard and the first for a UH player this season.
 
The 5-9 guard from Dallas, Texas averaged 19.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.0 assists as UH picked up its first road sweep of the season and secure sole possession of fourth place in the Big West. In UH's 76-69 win at UC Davis, Stepteau helped UH overcome a 15-point second half deficit by scoring 17 points, including six straight points in the final minutes to hold off the Aggies.
 
Stepteau followed that up with a 21-point, seven-rebound performance at Cal State Fullerton. He scored 15 of his points in the decisive second half and sealed the win by going 8-of-8 from the free throw line. For the week, he went 12-of-12 from the line and has now made 34 straight free throws, setting a new school record.
 
Stepteau and the Rainbow Warriors remain on the mainland as they ready for the Big West Tournament, March 14-16, in Anaheim. The No. 4 seed 'Bows will take on No. 5 Long Beach State in a quarterfinal matchup on Thursday, March 14 at 8:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. HT.
