HONOLULU – From the Land Down Under, to the frigid cold of the Dakotas (both North AND South), to a happy medium in the middle in Hawai’i, Brad Davidson’s coaching career has taken plenty of twists and turns. 

It has also allowed him to take in plenty of action featuring plenty of talent. 

The veteran basketball coach sat down Tuesday for a getting-to-know episode of Wake Up in The Den with Ku’ulei Agbayani’ and discussed a multitude of topics including his 13-year playing career in the NBL, the time he was replaced by a young Patty Mills for the Australian national team and his foray into coaching. 

After learning about the foundation that built Hawai’i’s Aussie assistant coach, the conversation shifted over to the Rainbow Warriors and how Davidson got involved with the ‘Bows in the first place. Knowing head coach Eran Ganot for a while through days of working on the highest-level circuit in Australia for basketball, Davidson had always half-joked with the ‘Bows head coach that he would be ready at the ring of a phone for a spot on the staff in Hawai’i – and then pounced on the opportunity when the real telephone ring came. 

Since coming to Hawai’i ahead of the 2021 season, Davidson has continued helping produce high-level guards, including assistance in the development of JoVon McClanahan as an all-conference caliber player. With the 2024-25 edition of the ‘Bows, it’ll be a new group of talented faces that Davidson says he is looking forward to working with. 

“You can see the hunger there for him and the chip on his shoulder,” Davidson said of incoming transfer Marcus Greene while discussing Hawai’i’s recruiting class so far. “He also has great leadership skills which is [something apparent with incoming freshman] Aaron Hunkin-Claytor.” 

Davidson mentioned returning junior point guard Kody Williams along with freshman AJ Economou that will get a chance to compete for a role this season, discussing the little things that make each player unique in the process. Hawai’i also returns standout sophomore guard Tom Beattie and promising young forward Akira Jacobs as players expected to progress in year two. 

You can catch ‘Wake Up in The Den with Ku’ulei Agbayani’ live every weekday morning from 8-9 a.m. HT on 95.1 FM, AM 760 and streaming on hawaiisportsradio.com. The show is available after recording where most podcasts are, along with past OIA and HPU broadcasts and older interviews.

HONOLULU – The remodeling of the Hawai’i Pacific University men’s basketball team gained a pair of eye-popping pieces from the transfer portal this weekend as the Sharks gained the commitment of former Division I guards Sherman Brashear and Pavle Kuzmanovic for the 2024-25 season. 

The addition of the two 6-foot-5 guards adds a pair of reliable scoring threats with size on the perimeter to the rotation for HPU. The Sharks, who lost 6-foot-3 shooter Tyrease Terrell to graduation and saw 6-foot-4 wing Melo Sanchez enter the transfer portal, immediately gain two players who will be able to contribute in a big way from Day 1 in the Shark Tank to fill the void as Jesse Nakanishi’s program looks to take the leap from playoff participants to playoff performers next season.  

Brashear, a 6-foot-5 left-handed shooter from Rockwall, Texas, was a 2020 graduate who spent his first year out of high school at Panola College, a respected junior college in Texas before transferring to Western Kentucky for his freshman season. Following a year with the Hilltoppers, another transfer was in the works to a better home in UTRGV where he spent the last two seasons in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) playing for the Vaqueros. He shot 40.2% from 3-point range last season across 31 appearances. The guard provided a scoring threat with defensive upside in various roles for the Vaqueros in his two seasons, totaling 43 steals in 63 contests while playing just under 20 minutes a night.

Last season against the University of Hawai’i, Brashear knocked down a triple and came away with two steals in a reserve role, working his way to the line five times in a 7-point outing. In the Vaqueros’ second-to-last game of the season on March 7, Brashear enjoyed his best showing of the year in a 79-74 loss against Utah Tech. The silky-smooth shooting guard tallied a career-best 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting (6-of-9 3PT) while pulling down five rebounds, collecting a trio of steals to go along with three assists in 37 minutes of action. 

Kuzmanovic, a 6-foot-5 wing from Loznica, Serbia, committed to Boise State ahead of the 2020-21 season after enjoying an incredibly successful international career in his youth. Before heading to the perennial NCAA Tournament contenders in the Broncos, Kuzmanovic helped lead the U18 Serbian National Team to the 2018 FIBA U18 European Championship and helped the U19 team advance to the 2019 FIBA World Cup quarterfinals the very next year. 

During the 2018-19 season, the rising Serbian star shot 44.8% from 3-point range for OKK Beograd, a feeder club for Mega Basket that plays in one of Serbia’s top-level basketball divisions, Basketball League of Serbia. With the sharp-shooting touch of the young Kuzmanovic, OKK Beograd finished with the organization’s second-best placement in league standings ever. 

He spent his final year before college playing in the highest-level professional league in Montenegro, Prva A Liga, for KK ABS Primorje and appeared in 11 games for the team. The Serbian sharpshooter drilled over 38% of his 3-point attempts while playing about 27 minutes per contest, averaging 11.2 points as a 19-year-old against grown men before heading to the United States to play college basketball. 

In three seasons with Boise State, Kuzmanovic and the Broncos made the NCAA Tournament two times while making the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in the other season. After his junior season with the Broncos, Kuzmanovic transferred to Arkansas-Little Rock and appeared in eight games, dealing with a nagging foot injury. 

The commitments of Kuzmanovic and Brashear wrap up the offseason recruiting cycle for the Sharks after adding five fresh players via the portal and high school commitments.

For The Standard’s Deen Agustin, the journey to represent has just started

BY PAUL BRECHT | HONOLULU
PUBLISHED MAY 31, 2024

Even before he could legally operate a car alone, Deen Agustin was ready to take a road that had not been traveled before. 

A longtime football fan, Agustin remembers the journey to the present day beginning at 16 years old. With college rapidly approaching, he needed to sit down and think about what he wanted the future to look like in his career. A self-admitted “people person” with a desire to enter the world of professional football, Agustin turned to the business side of a league he was passionate about, finding that his strengths could be complemented through player representation. 

With a target locked onto, Agustin designed a seven-year plan at 16 years old to pursue and achieve the goal of becoming an NFLPA certified agent. One problem for the young man of Native Hawaiian decent? 

“Growing up, there wasn’t really anyone who I could look up to because there really is no other Pacific Islander or Asian American agents out there,” Agustin said. “So, I figured why not be the first one, or one of the first at least.”  

Part of the thought process of his pursuit anyway? The heavy Polynesian influence in the NFL. 

“Watching like Troy Polamalu or Haloti Ngata and guys like that [growing up], it was always really interesting to me because there has always been a lot of Polynesians in the NFL. They’re always the backbone of the NFL, really. They’re in the trenches, they’re flashy players too … They play with a lot of heart and everyone in the culture knows that we wear our hearts on our sleeves,” Agustin recalled. “[Being an agent] was something I really wanted to do and represent for the culture because there was no one on the business side helping out the culture in that way.” 

With the goals in place, it was time to go to work for Agustin. The Bay Area native would go on to attend San Francisco State for his bachelor’s degree, only that was not enough for the hard-working agent-to-be. He contacted members of the sport management program at nearby University of San Francisco, getting permission to sit in on a few classes at USF as early as his freshman year at San Francisco State. 

It was a two-pronged plan for Agustin, who knew he wanted to attend USF for graduate school but also had the desire to take in as much information about the world he was soon to dive into as he could. The plan worked, too. 

“It really paid off for me because when I was applying, about a week after I had applied to grad school, they let me know that they were going to admit me,” Agustin chuckled. 

Networking – which Agustin says is the number one key to focus on in the industry – was only beginning. After his enrollment at the University of San Francisco, Agustin was introduced to his future place of work, The Standard, and worked to find ways into meeting more people at the agency. That strategy paid off in the form of an interview, which was all he needed. 

The Standard, a sports representation organization that helps many players with Native Hawaiian and Polynesian backgrounds as they pursue their athletic dreams, was founded by musical group Common Kings manager Tautua Reed and former Miami Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi, both of whom come from Polynesian backgrounds, along with Chief Legal Officer Chris Bowley.  

Along with parent company Kīnā’ole Foundation, led by CEO Billy Cress, The Standard has a stated goal to show an “unwavering commitment to athletes and coaches from Native Hawaiian and Polynesian backgrounds” while raising the level of representation for a group that made up five percent of the 2024 NFL Draft selections.

For Agustin, a job with the agency was a match made in heaven. 

Quickly after his graduation from USF in the spring of 2023, Agustin worked his way into a job with The Standard, becoming certified as an agent by the NFL Players’ Association by the fall and signing Sione Vaki as his first client. Despite Vaki being represented by the agency throughout his time in college with Utah, Agustin and The Standard re-pitched the versatile star on staying with the agency heading into his professional career. 

“We wanted to do right by him … and welcome him to the NFL side of the business,” Agustin said of the plan to re-pitch a client that had already been with the agency. “It was really the first time that I was able to get a lot of face time with him and [we] just clicked right away because just like me, he’s a Bay Area kid, we’re both Polynesians and we’re both going into our rookie years in the NFL, so to speak.” 

The now-24-year-old Agustin made history last month alongside his client, Detroit Lions’ 4th-round pick Sione Vaki, as the two became the first drafted Polynesian player and agent duo in NFL history. Vaki signed his rookie contract with the Lions on May 10, right in the middle of Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. To the youngest agent with a client drafted this year, it was a fitting moment to cap off what has been a full-circle journey for Agustin. 

“It was a really poetic moment for him to be drafted by Detroit and their color just so happened to be Honolulu Blue. It was really like a storybook moment, for sure,” Agustin said about Vaki getting selected by the Lions. “Sione is probably the best first client anyone could ever ask for; [he] does nothing but work hard, super humble and grateful for everything.” 

Vaki, a 2023 finalist for the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year award, and his agent aren’t so different in their processes. While both jump at the chance to prove naysayers wrong, it is always done with hard work and a willingness to push the boundaries of what they are capable of. There were many doubters from the outside on the ability of the 24-year-old to be able to represent an NFL draftee as an agent in his first calendar year on the big circuit, but with the help and trust of The Standard team and Vaki alike, Agustin has continued to crush the qualms of others while helping trailblaze the way for other future agents with similar hopes and dreams. 

“I just can’t express how grateful I am for The Standard taking a chance on me and giving me an opportunity to represent the Polynesian culture at the highest level of business in football,” Agustin gushed. “Between the leaders at The Standard and Sione [Vaki], the confidence and trust I’ve been shown only motivates me more.” 

While it has been a rocket ship take-off for both The Standard and Agustin in the first year in getting into the NFL side of things, their work is far from finished for Polynesian players. Deeply experienced in the world of NIL with high school and college student-athletes alike, the agency already represents the state of Hawai’i’s top 2025 high school football recruit in Campbell quarterback Jaron Keawe-Sagapolutele. The left-handed star QB likely won’t be the only one in this cycle represented by The Standard among talent in the islands between the high school and college level. The journey has only begun, but not just on the field. 

The Standard and Kīnā’ole Foundation will continue to try to make their presence known in the islands and within the community through service, funding and representation of more athletes vying for futures at the next level – collegiate or professional. 

Maybe even in the business side of things? 

“I think in the summer we might be looking for interns,” Agustin laughed.

PUBLISHED FEB 29, 2024 | SCHEDULE UPDATED MAY 30, 2024

HONOLULU – The University of Hawai’i football program, in conjunction with the Mountain West Conference, revealed the 2024 football season schedule for the Rainbow Warriors Thursday morning that features 12 regular season games, three bye weeks, the new Pac-12/Mountain West crossover game and much more. 

In 2023, UH played a 13-game schedule and finished 5-8 overall, just missing out on bowl game eligibility in year two under Timmy Chang. The ‘Bows will play a completely different slate of non-conference opponents while only seeing four repeats from the Mountain West schedule this year as the conference works with the overall realignment in college football that impacted the remaining Pac-12 teams.

Below is a quick week-by-week breakdown of the 2024 Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors’ football opponents with dates and game locations included. 

WEEK 0 – vs Delaware State (August 24) 

Last season record: 1-10 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 1st Meeting 

Hailing out of the FCS, the Hornets finished last in the MEAC (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) in 2023 after posting just one win and losing all five conference contests. It’ll be Year 2 of the Lee Hull rebuild of the Delaware State program as the former CFL wideout and Patriots’ training camp invitee looks to incorporate 13 new signees, six high school prospects and seven college transfers. 

The first-time opponent of Hawai’i returns most of last year’s extremely-youthful roster while adding key pieces like UNLV transfer WR Jordan Jakes and former 5-star QB recruit D’Wan Mathis – the later of whom previously spent time with Georgia backing up Stetson Bennett before transferring to Temple in 2021. 

WEEK 1 – vs UCLA (August 31) 1:30 PM HT • CBS

Last season record: 8-5 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 4-0 

The ‘Bows will look for their 1st win in program history over the Bruins as UCLA visits UH for the first time since 1939 for the Poi Bowl at Honolulu Stadium. Hawai’i and UCLA have played twice since the turn of the century, both in Pasadena and both 3+ TD wins for the Bruins. 

UH will serve as first-time head coach and former UCLA All-American DeShaun Foster’s first game as HC for the Bruins. The former NFL standout spent the past seven seasons as the RBs coach for his alma mater, was promoted to associate HC ahead of the 2023 campaign and took the full-time gig after Chip Kelly’s February departure. Under Foster’s tutelage, UCLA has led the Pac-12 for two straight years but lost leading rusher Carson Steele to the NFL draft. The Bruins will still have RB T.J. Harden, who completed his sophomore season right behind Steele with 827 yards and 8 rushing TDs. 

WEEK 2 – BYE (September 7) 

WEEK 3 – at Sam Houston State (September 14) 1:OO PM HT • ESPN+

Last season record: 3-9 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 1st Meeting 

The second of two first-time opponents for UH, the Bearkats will be participating in their second FBS season and first that it is eligible for the postseason. Sam Houston began to figure things out to end last season, winning three of the final four games in 2023 as they competed as members of Conference USA. 

Hawai’i serves as the home-opener for the Bearkats as Sam Houston hits the road for the opening two games of their slate. Sam Houston received six CUSA player honors, placing three players on the all-freshman team while also returning DB Da’Marcus Crosby – one of the program’s two 1st-team all-conference defenders from last year. 

WEEK 4 – vs Northern Iowa (September 21)

Last season record: 6-5 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 0-1 

The 2nd FCS opponent on UH’s 2024 schedule, the Panthers worked through a difficult slate last year to finish above .500 with two wins over ranked FCS opponents and five total ranked opponents. Northern Iowa will see Dylan Raiola and Nebraska in Lincoln before traveling to Honolulu to take on the Rainbow Warriors for the second time ever. 

UNI is led by longtime head coach Mark Farley, who ranks second amongst active coaches in FCS wins with 180 and has guided the Panthers to winning seasons in 19 of the 23 years he has been head coach, developing 40 NFL players in that time. He is *almost* as legendary as the great Stan Sheriff, who spent 23 years as UNI’s head coach for football before becoming the school’s athletic director for another 13 calendar changes. Sheriff is in both UNI and UH Hall of Fames, serving as Hawai’i’s athletic director for 10 years as well before his passing.  

*Note: If Hawai’i wins versus both Delaware State and Northern Iowa, only one of the victories will be counted towards bowl eligibility requirements. * 

WEEK 5 – BYE (September 28) 

WEEK 6 – at San Diego State (October 5)  2:00 PM HT • CBSSN

Last season record: 4-8 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 22-9-2 

Some déja vu here for Hawai’i, who has dropped the last four meetings against SDSU with the most recent matchup ending in a 41-34 home loss for the ‘Bows while coming off of a bye week back in October of 2023. The ‘Bows have historically struggled in San Diego, sitting at 3-11 all-time while visiting the Aztecs, but will look for some revenge as they get a do-over of sorts from last season against a rebuilding San Diego State program under new head coach Sean Lewis. 

It’ll be the UH defense, newly under the watch of longtime coaching veteran Dennis Thurman, who will especially circle this one. The ‘Bows allowed 21 points in the 4th quarter of that 2023 loss to the Aztecs and hope to begin the Mountain West portion of the schedule with a resounding response one year later while changing the series’ historical narrative. 

WEEK 7 – vs Boise State (October 12) 5:00 PM HT • CBSSN

Last season record: 8-6 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 15-3 

The 2023 season was a strange one for Boise State, but one that ended in a record fifth overall Mountain West title and the conference-best fourth championship game behind over 300 rushing yards. The Broncos did it under the leadership of then-interim head coach Spencer Danielson, who won the final three games of the year (including the MW title game against UNLV) before being elevated to the full-time head coaching position. 

Boise State will be boosted by On3’s highest-rated Mountain West recruiting class since 2002 with 28 total players being added to the defending conference champions. The most notable is former 5-star recruit and USC transfer QB Malachi Nelson, the 13th-rated high school recruit in the class of 2023. The 6-foot-3 redshirt freshman will likely compete for the starting job for the Broncos after previous starting QB Taylen Green transferred to Arkansas this offseason. 

WEEK 8 – at Washington State (October 19) • CW

Last season record: 5-7 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 2-3 

Taking the place of Hawai’i visiting Air Force, the ‘Bows will head to Pullman instead as part of the Pac 12/Mountain West alliance (agreement? partnership?) that sees all MW teams playing one of Oregon State or Washington State during the conference schedule. The programs haven’t met in 15 years – the last matchup was September 12, 2009 – but both sides have something to prove after five-win seasons. 

It’ll be a matchup of young, third-year head coaches as WSU head coach Jake Dickert and UH head coach Timmy Chang face off. Hawai’i has struggled on the road over the past two seasons and Dickert sits a game under .500 after his couple years as Pullman’s main man. The Cougs have a couple Hawai’i connections on the roster in DBs Kapena Gushiken and Tanner Moku. Gushiken is a KS-Maui graduate and transferred into WSU after two seasons at Saddleback College while Moku is a KS-Kapālama alum who is the younger brother of former UH offensive lineman Kaiwi Chung (‘18). 

WEEK 9 – vs Nevada (October 26) 

Last season record: 2-10 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 12-13 

Another team with a change in the lead chair, Nevada hired Jeff Choate as the 28th head coach in program history back on December 4, 2023, replacing Ken Wilson after serving as the co-defensive coordinator at Texas for the past three seasons. The Wolfpack won’t be Choate’s first head coaching job at the college level, though. The longtime football coach spent four years as the head man at FCS Montana State, leading the Bobcats to back-to-back playoff appearances in his final two seasons. 

This matchup is always fun for multiple reasons, perhaps none bigger than the connections between the two programs. Defensive tackle Dion Washington made the flip in the transfer portal from the Wolfpack to the ‘Bows this past offseason while Hawai’i’s head coach Timmy Chang spent a few seasons with Nevada before taking over his alma mater’s football program. Nevada also started redshirt freshman QB A.J. Bianco for eight games last season as the former Saint Louis standout battled for the position all year.

WEEK 10 – at Fresno State (November 2) 

Last season record: 9-4 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 25-20-1 

The Bulldogs looked like the Mountain West favorite through the non-conference schedule in 2023 with a perfect 4-0 start and winning four of their first five conference games – and then the wheels fell off. Fresno State lost the final three regular season games, crushing conference hopes, before salvaging the end of the year with a win in the Isleta New Mexico Bowl over NMSU, 37-10. 

Hawai’i didn’t play the Bulldogs in 2023, last meeting in Fresno in 2022 – Chang’s first season. This could be a particularly good measuring stick game to show how far Hawai’i has come in a couple seasons against one of the conference’s typical powers. The matchup also pits the Mountain West’s top two passing touchdown leaders against each other in Hawai’i senior Brayden Schager (26 TDs in ‘23) and Fresno State junior Mikey Keene (24 TDs in ‘23). Preemptively take the over in this one. 

 WEEK 11 – vs UNLV (November 9)  4:00 PM HT • CBSSN

Last season record: 9-5 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 14-19 

One of the four rivalry trophy games, it’s the “Island Showdown” Trophy on the line. The Rebels took the rivalry trophy back last season with a 44-20 win over Hawai’i as UNLV turned into the “Runnin’ Rebels” with 307 yards on the ground while the ‘Bows went 1-of-11 on 3rd down. 

It’ll be a much different UNLV squad coming to the islands after redshirt freshman QB Jayden Maiava transferred to USC this offseason and former starter Doug Brumfield retired from football. That doesn’t mean the Rebels will be in trouble in year two under 2023 Mountain West Coach of the Year Barry Odom, who recruited and gained the commitment of Holy Cross graduate transfer QB Matt Sluka – an FCS standout that totaled 29 total TDs, over 1,200 yards rushing and more than 1,700 yards through the air in his senior season. The 6-foot-3 dual-threat quarterback should be an excellent fit in Brennan Marion’s “Go-Go Offense” that saw great success last season. 

WEEK 12 – at Utah State (November 16) 

Last season record: 6-7 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 12-5 

The fifth and final of Hawai’i’s opponents that made a bowl game in 2023, the Aggies have won seven consecutive matchups with the Rainbow Warriors and the last three in Logan, Utah. In fact, Hawai’i is just 2-6 on the road against USU since 1957.  As the ‘Bows look to switch back to an FBS contender again, this can be a statement of sorts on the road. 

Utah State finished just a game ahead of the Rainbow Warriors in 2023 and could be one of the key swing games for Hawai’i’s bowl hopes in Chang’s third year. There will be some NFL-level receiving talent on display in this one as Utah State’s All-Mountain West 1st-Team receiver Jalen Royals and Hawai’i’s 2nd-Team All-Mountain West receiver Steven McBride both returned to their respective programs. That doesn’t even mention UH’s Freshman All-America selection Pofele Ashlock, who led the team with 83 receptions last season while hauling in nine scores, tied with McBride for tops on the team. 

WEEK 13 – BYE (November 23) 

WEEK 14 – vs New Mexico (November 30) 

Last season record: 4-8 | All-time record vs Hawai’i: 11-16 

The loss at New Mexico last season ended up being a crushing blow to the bowl chances of Hawai’i as the Lobos were one of three teams to finish below the ‘Bows in the final conference standings. There’s a chance that this season’s bowl hopes will rest on this final regular season game and the Rainbow Warriors don’t want to repeat history. 

New Mexico will be the fifth team with a new head coach that Hawai’i faces in 2024 as Bronco Mendenhall takes over the program in his return to the Mountain West. The 57-year-old was BYU’s head coach for 11 seasons, beginning in 2005. He compiled double-digit wins in five of those seasons with the first one coming in year two. Mendenhall was also 2-0 in his time at BYU against Hawai’i with a win at home and at Aloha Stadium. The ‘Bows will have to expel former demons all the way through the end of the year for bowl opportunities.
