For the past couple of weeks, Roderick Bobbitt had been quiet for Hawaii, even as the Warriors amassed a pretty nice record. Sure there were some good assist numbers, but nothing that really had the ability to shock you.
That all changed this week when Hawaii hosted the Diamond Head Classic.
Bobbitt began his run to an all-tournament team nod with eight assists as Hawaii bested Northern Iowa to earn its best win of the year. Standing in their way next was No. 3 Oklahoma, but that didn't slow down Bobbitt; it only made him better.
Bobbitt scored 32 points against the Sooners, including an impressive 13-for-16 from the free throw line. He added six assists and had three steals in the loss.
He continues his strong run against Auburn in the third-place game. He scored 30 points on 8-for-13 shooting with most of the damage coming from behind the the 3-point line. Bobbitt hit six of seven from deep while adding four rebounds and two steals as the Warriors emerged victorious in the consolation game.
For his strong performance over the course of the tournament, Bobbitt earns our Mid-Major Madness Player of the Week.
