Warriors arrive on Maui

The Hawaii basketball team is hoping first-class accommodations lead to a first-class performance on Maui.

The Warriors spent Thursday night resting in the posh Sheraton Maui Resort in preparation for Friday’s game against Chicago State. The “home” game for Hawaii will be played in the Lahaina Civic Center on Maui.

“The bed’s are great, the pillows are great, everything’s great,” freshman forward Trevor Wiseman said. “I’d definitely come here again, it’s really nice.”

Although some of the Warriors have rooms overlooking the pristine Ka’anapali Beach, it is a mere temptation. The ocean is off-limits for the players during this trip.

“We’re here for a game,” freshman Bobby Miles said. “So we haven’t really walked around and done stuff around here. I like the view from my room though.”

The Warriors went through a one-hour practice on Friday afternoon at the Lahaina Civic Center in preparation for the game.

Senior forward Bill Amis did not participate in the practice, and will not play in the game due to an injured right foot. He has already missed the last four games with the injury, but it was hoped earlier this week that he might be able to play a few minutes against Chicago State.

The absence of Amis will leave the Warriors with nine players available for the game against Chicago State.
