On the Double with The Double S Xpress, August 26, 2013
Sean Boyd is Live from Hawaii as The Double S talk University of Washington Football with former UW WR Mario Bailey. Big Time Guest number 2 is Eric Bovaird, the Head Coach of Men's Basketball at Chaminade!
Guest, Eric Bovaird
Third-year head coach Eric Bovaird is continuing the winning tradition of men's basketball at Chaminade University of Honolulu.
In only his second season, he guided the Silverswords to the 2013 NCAA West Regional in Bellingham, Wash. He also took CUH to the championship game of the inaugural PacWest Conference Basketball Tournament in Azusa, Calif.
Having perhaps the toughest schedule in NCAA Division II annually certainly prepares the Swords for the postseason - none more than playing in the EA Sports Maui Invitational, which features some of the best Division I college programs from around the nation and televised across the nation on the ESPN family of networks.
The buzz of the 2012 version was the Swords' first round upset of Texas, considered to be one of the greatest wins since the historic 1982 victory over No. 1 Virginia. The win over the Longhorns sent the social media world a blaze. It was even one of the trending topic on Twitter.
In addition to playing three Division I heavyweights on Maui, Bovaird, along with CUH Athletics Director, Bill Villa, added a fourth Division I foe. This time with the neighboring University of Hawai`i, the state's only Division I school which is less than a mile away from the Chaminade campus.
