Warrior Insider

The Inside Source for Hawaii Men's Basketball

All in at all hours

One of the mottos for the Hawaii basketball team this season is “All In.”

This week, it has applied to all hours.

The Warriors completed a late-night practice at 10:35 p.m. on Tuesday, due in part to head coach Gib Arnold’s schedule.

“We went a little late tonight – I was on the Mainland recruiting,” Arnold said. “I felt it was necessary to get back in here, even though my flight got back around 8 o’clock.”

The Warriors will host two Western Athletic Conference games at the Stan Sheriff Center this week: Fresno State on Thursday, then San Jose State on Saturday. Both games are scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

Hawaii – which is coming off a confidence-building, streak-busting road victory at Louisiana Tech – is 10-8 overall and 1-5 in the WAC. Fresno State is 7-9 overall and 3-3 in the WAC.

“I’m about to sleep good tonight,” freshman Trevor Wiseman said after the late-night practice. “But we need the practice anyway to get better, so I’m fine with it.”

Two players – redshirts Davis Rozitis and Pi’i Minns – went overtime, playing one-on-one until 11 p.m., when the lights in the gym went off.

“That’s just how redshirts have fun in Hawaii,” Rozitis said. “It’s never over.”
