Warriors preparing for unique schedule in December

November is in the rear-view mirror for the University of Hawai’i basketball team, and now the Warriors can look forward to a unique stretch of games in December.

The Warriors, who went 4-3 over a seven-game stretch from November 11-27, will play six games in the month of December: 6, 7, 22, 23, 25 and 29. That stretch includes two nationally-televised tournaments – the Pearl Harbor Invitational and the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.

First up is the Pearl Harbor Invitational. The Warriors will play Seton Hall on December 6, and then Princeton on December 7. Those games will mark the first time this season that Hawai’i will not be playing in the Stan Sheriff Center.

Both games will be played at Bloch Arena, Pearl Harbor. Both games are scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m., and will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

Seton Hall, which beat eventual national champion Villanova for the Big East Conference Tournament championship last season, is 5-2 so far this season. The Pirates’ losses so far have been to Florida and Stanford.

Seton Hall has one of the top guards in the Big East in 6-foot-4 junior Khadeen Carrington. He is averaging 21.0 points per game while shooting 58.6 percent from the field overall, and 55.2 percent from 3-point range.

Princeton is 2-3 this season, with all three losses on the road – at BYU, at Lehigh and at VCU. Its two wins are against Lafayette and Rowan.

The Tigers rely on a balanced attack, with three players averaging double-figure points. Steven Cook, a 6-5 senior forward, leads the way with 13.0 points per game and a .595 field goal percentage.

There is a fourth team in the Pearl Harbor – Cal. The Warriors beat the Golden Bears in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last season, but will not play each other in the Pearl Harbor Invitational. Cal will face Princeton on December 6, then Seton Hall on December 7.

    Would love to see a game there.

  3. Per poster Oahuan, this mighty mite and St Francis outplayed Kahuku ( Avea and Villa), partly due to maybe coaching schemes too.
