Those around the program hope Hanour will have his first injury-free season at San Diego State... Entering his third season on The Mesa, Hanour has played in just 18 games in his two seasons at SDSU and has had two knee surgeries since he last saw action in a game... Although his three-year stats aren't exactly eye-popping, the medical and coaching staffs hope that off-season surgery will allow Hanour to go through a season healthy for the first time and he will finally be able to show why he was a projected starter for the Arizona Wildcats before transferring prior to the 2001-02 season... An athletic, intelligent performer, Hanour was the Aztecs' best player during the first month of practice prior to the 2002-03 season, but difficulty with tendinitis in both knees limited his playing time and productivity
Summer Update (2004)
Had surgery on his right knee on April 7th to alleviate chronic tendinitis... This is the same surgery Hanour had performed on his left knee last spring (exactly 51 weeks earlier to the day)... The surgery has relegated Hanour to the weight room, and will likely keep him off the court until October... He is not expected to miss any practice time due to the surgery.
As a Junior (2003-2004)
Continued to be plagued by injuries, missing the entire season due to a variety of ailments... Underwent left knee surgery on April 14th to eliminate chronic tendinitis... That surgery kept him off the court during the summer... Played his first fullcourt pick-up game on Sept. 25... While not able to play, Hanour spent quality time in the weight room and added considerable muscle to his upper body... Was unable to participate in preseason conditioning because of the surgery, but started practicing with the team in October... Suffered a bulging disc and did not practice with the team from Nov. 2-Dec. 28... Practiced with the team for 30 minutes on Dec. 29 and was practicing every day since, until suffering a sprained ankle which forced him to miss games during January... After sitting out a couple of weeks, Hanour reaggravated the ankle injury and that put him on the shelf for the remainder of the season... Had already used his redshirt season (when he transferred) and can not request a medical redshirt season or sixth year from the NCAA until his eligibility has expired, hence the 2003-04 season counts against his four years.
As A Sophomore (2002-03)
Played in 18 games and drew the starting assignment eight times... Missed the six first games of the season per the NCAA's 4-2-4 transfer rule, but played in 18 of the next 19 games before missing the final five games of the season due to tendinitis... His eight starts tied for the fifth highest total on the team and are tied for second among returning players... Had four rebounds and an assist in 10 minutes at Brigham Young (2-17-03)... Drew the start and posted three points and two rebounds in seven minutes of play at Utah (2-15-03)... Left the game against the Utes with a sprained ankle and was doubtful for the contest against the Cougars before seeing 10 minutes of action... Had a strong performance with three points and three rebounds in 13 minutes vs. UNLV (2-11-03)... Played only six minutes vs. Wyoming (2-3-03), but pulled down three rebounds and dished out an assist... Had a tough shooting night against the Rams when he connected on 1-of-11 from the field, including 1-of-7 from three-point range... Despite the cold shooting night, Hanour played well, recording five points, four rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes of action... Connected on 1-of-2 field goal attempts against New Mexico... Prior to that game, he suffered his first scoreless game as a member of the Aztecs, grabbing one rebound in 14 minutes of action against Brigham Young (1-20-03)... Had a career-best 35 minutes against Utah (1-18-03) which resulted in four points and a career-high seven rebounds against the Utes... Scored three points and added six rebounds in 20 minutes of action against San Diego... Returned from a one-game hiatus due to the flu with a strong performance against Texas Tech (1-6-03)... Played 22 minutes, with five points, two rebounds, two steals, one assist and two blocked shots against the Red Raiders... In his first three games at San Diego State his playing time increased (16-18-21), his point production increased (4-6-11) and his rebound total increased (2-4-4)... That trend changed slightly in the Aztecs' blowout victory against IPFW (12-30-02), when he scored three points, tied a career-high with five rebounds and added two assists in 19 minutes of action... Scored 11 points in 21 minutes of action against Florida Atlantic (12-28-02), tying a career-high point total... Played 16 minutes in his debut against Hawai'i (12-14-02) and scored four points while adding two rebounds and two assists... As an example of his all-around abilities, Hanour recorded a basket, a rebound, an assist and a blocked shot in his first 100 seconds on the court.
As A Freshman at Arizona (2000-01)

Scored a career-high 11 points at Oregon State (2-3-01), connecting on 4-of-5 attempts from the floor, including 3-of-4 from bonus distance...
