Bio: First name pronounced ROO-ee; last name pronounced HATCH-ee-MURR-uh. Breakout performance at the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championships, averaging a tournament-best 22.1 points. Led Meisei High School to a second straight winter All-Japan High School Tournament title by averaging 28.0 points in five games. Only Japanese player invited to play in the Jordan Brand Classic’s international game at the Barclays Center in 2015.

Jr. Scouting report: Athletic forward has made some preseason All-America teams and projected by many as an NBA lottery pick, particularly if he shows improvement on perimeter shot. Opted to return for junior season without testing draft waters. Provides offensive spark and has improved defensively. Great upside because of his explosive athleticism, versatility and room for growth in his game. Helped Japan win four FIBA World Cup Asian qualifier games last spring and summer. Scored 25 points in victory over Iran and 24 in win over Kazakhstan.
So. Scouting report: Emerged as key piece in the rotation. Started two games and came off the bench in 35, but still earned first-team All-WCC honors. Named to NABC second-team All-District 9. Averaged 11.6 points and 4.7 rebounds. Team’s leading scorer in conference games (12.9 points). Scored 20 points in overtime win against Texas, 23 points in loss to Saint Mary’s and career-high 25 in NCAA Tournament win over Ohio State.
Fr. Scouting report: Became just fifth Japanese-born male to play in a Division I game. Played 128 minutes in 28 appearances in a reserve role. Averaged 2.6 points. Contributed season highs with 10 points and nine rebounds against Mississippi Valley State.
