Home finale is this Saturday

Believe it or not, this is the final week at home for the 2016-17 version of the University of Hawai’i basketball team.

The Warriors will host Cal State Fullerton on “Senior Night” this Saturday, February 25, at the Stan Sheriff Center. The game is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m.

Noah Allen – the team’s only senior on the active roster – will be honored after the game. The 6-foot-7 forward has put together a fantastic season, including four 30-point games. He is currently averaging 15.2 points per game, and one more 30-point game for him will tie the UH program record.

Hawai’i is 13-13 overall and in sixth place in the Big West Conference at 7-6. The Warriors, who scrambled to find five new starters for this season, have surpassed many preseason expectations, including an eight-place prediction in the Big West Conference Preseason Poll.

Also, the three most recent inductees to the University of Hawai’i Sports Circle of Honor will be honored during halftime of the game. All three inductees have ties to the UH men’s basketball program: former head coach Riley Wallace (the program’s all-time winningest coach), former star forward Anthony “Tony” Davis (still holds the UH single-game record of 45 points set in 1959), and the longtime “Voice of the Rainbows” Jim Leahey.

Ticket prices range from $5 for students in upper-level seats, to $30 for lower-level seats. Ticket sales and information are available at www.hawaiiathletics.com.

After Saturday’s game, the Warriors will return to the road for the final two games of the regular season – at UC Davis on March 2, and at Long Beach State on March 4.
