UH alumnus pens sports trivia book

Name the first University of Hawaiʻi Rainbow Wahine to play in the WNBA.

If you know that answer, you’re either Lance Tominaga or a candidate to buy his new book.

The UH Mānoa graduate and ESPN 1420 web and magazine editor cut his teeth as a young armchair statistician documenting goals, fouls and free throws by UH’s Fabulous Five basketball team.

Tominaga penned his lifetime passion in The Hawaiʻi Sports Trivia Challenge: 1,000 Questions to Test Your Sports IQ! (Watermark Publishing).

Besides UH athletics, the 200-page book tests knowledge of Hawaiʻi Winter Baseball, golf, local Little League, high school sports and even fishing.

That pioneer basketball player? All-American forward Judy Mosley, for the Sacramento Monarchs.
