Justice Sueing, shown in a 2015 game for Maryknoll, is a freshman forward for Cal. Jay Metzger / Special to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Justice Sueing, a 6-foot-7 forward, is averaging 13 points and 4.5 rebounds per game after two contests as a freshman with the Cal Bears.

    By 2019, there will be at least 8 players that I can think of with strong Hawai’i ties playing D1 basketball:

    Samuta Avea – Hawai’i
    Daniel Fotu – St. Mary’s
    Kamaka Hepa – Texas
    Hugh Hogland – Portland
    Marcus Shaver – Portland
    Glen “Tolu” Smith – Western Kentucky
    Justice Sueing – Cal
    Jessiya Villa – Hawai’i

    808 state has never been well represented like this in Division 1 basketball!
