HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii has hired former point guard Dana
Takahara-Dias to be its women's basketball coach.
She succeeds Jim Bolla, who was fired in April and has filed a
wrongful termination lawsuit. Athletics director Jim Donovan made the announcement Thursday.
Takahara-Dias played for the Rainbow Wahine in the 1980s and
served as an administrative assistant under former coach Vince Goo.

and serving as team captain her senior year. She averaged 2.2
points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists.
Takahara-Dias coached at Moanalua High School in the 1990s and a state prep all-star team since 2006.
