Warriors take winning streak and more on the road


The University of Hawai’i basketball team is scheduled to depart Honolulu on Thursday afternoon for its second road trip of the season. The Warriors will play at Northern Arizona on Saturday afternoon (2 p.m. Hawaii time) at Flagstaff, Arizona.

Hawai’i is 5-2 overall and will take a three-game winning streak with it to Arizona. The Lumberjacks are 2-6, and on a three-game losing streak.

The Warriors’ previous road trip came last month, when it traveled to Kansas City, Missouri, and dropped a 92-80 game to Missouri. If anything, the players now know what is involved with travel and staying in hotels for a few days.

“These first two trips are longer in terms of flight time than any other trip we’ll make in conference, so it’ll give the new guys an idea of what to expect,” head coach Gib Arnold said.

In addition to the winning streak, the Warriors will be packing some curious items, including a Nook electronic tablet, li hing mui, beef jerkey and good luck sweats. Some of the players share their “must bring” road items in the video above.

  1. I think if guys play with effort ,rebound, D up,and score 80 plus points the team can win..actually this is a huge road game..have to get W…UH has some depth!!
    Go Bows!!

  2. IF they play with Good Effort, Rebound and D…
    Even Without Fotu (Aaron? Christian and Davis?)
    75 Might be enough….80 Better Be Enough…
    [N.Arizona scored more than 75 Only Once (78) against a D-1 Opponent and still Lost by 12;
    BUT ARE Undefeated @ Home]
    NEED To WIN With Defense to Validate the Lessons of the last Three Weeks…
    BUT Winning A FEW Games this season by Flat out Out-Scoring the (BW?) Opposition who CAN Get Hot, is Fine by Me…

    GOOD Test
    Gotta Pass, Team !
    (Let Isaac Heal, Montana MIGHT Have Been TOO Much, Too Soon, without him…)

    GO ‘Bows!

  3. Fotu and Rozitis cracked me UP!

    I thought Rozitis looked like Larry of the 3 Stooges. LOL!

  4. …and Fotu’s hair looks like …

  5. Well, at least a couple guys mentioned laptop for school work, or book to read, hey Warriors,ACADEMICS , take all your books, laptops ,papers to read and keep up with your classes first and foremost, keep up your grades, we need to keep our APR at the top level , ok Warriors beat N.Arizona, show no mercy.!

  6. i “think” Gib said they can fly out after Classes on Thursday, so Only Miss Friday Classes?

    THAT Would be An Advantage of a (n otherwise Expensive Cost per Game) One Game Weekend Road Trip…

    Ideally that Would Become Cost per Road WIN…

    And we can Bank on Better Road Performance(s) The Rest of The Season!

  7. For those with Direct TV…Fox Sports Arizona is channel 686.

  8. Stay focus. Go get ‘um Warriors!

  9. C’mon guys. Pulling shorts way up making fun of old school shoot by Curry!
