COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Hawai‘i Head Coach Dave Shoji was named the West region coach of the year Wednesday.
Shoji has led the second-ranked Rainbow Wahine to just their second undefeated regular season, despite having just one returning starter back from 2003. He won his eighth Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year award in 2004 and has guided his team to their 23rd NCAA Tournament. He has the highest winning percentage of any active head coach (.853) with a mark of 870-149-1 and 30 consecutive winning seasons.

Free agent signings
NEW YORK — Arizona snapped up Troy Glaus and Los Angeles added Jeff Kent as teams made big-money deals with All-Stars one day before the start of the winter meetings.
Glaus, the 2002 World Series MVP as Anaheim’s third baseman, agreed to a $45 million, four-year contract with the last-place Diamondbacks.
The Dodgers announced a $17 million, two-year contract with Kent, the second baseman who helped Houston come within a game of its first NL pennant.
Holmes out for season
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs star running back Priest Holmes will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Holmes, who was leading the NFL in scoring and rushing when he got hurt Nov. 7, was placed on injured reserve but will not need surgery.
Coach Dick Vermeil said Holmes might have remained on the roster if the Chiefs (4-8) were headed for the playoffs. But he had already been declared out for Monday night’s game at Tennessee, and the Chiefs will play only three more times after that.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State imposed a one-year ban on postseason play by its men’s basketball team in response to $6,000 the university said former coach Jim O’Brien gave a recruit who never played for the school.
The ban includes NCAA and NIT bids, but the Buckeyes will be permitted to play for the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles.
Mata, Matayoshi high scorers
Natalie Mata led her Waimea B&G crew with 13 points in a 31-18 win over the Lihu‘e Comets on Thursday night at Kalaheo Gym in girls 14-and-under action. Kelsey Cadiente put up seven points for the Comets.
In the second contest, Gabbrielle Matayoshi’s 11 points for Wailua A was enough for the 47-24 victory over Wailua B. Kira Kupihea notched eight points to lead the “B” squad.
