Hawai’i will be 4, 5 or 6 seed at Big West Tournament

The University of Hawai’i basketball team can finish no higher than fourth place, and no lower than sixth place, with two games remaining in the Big West Conference regular season.

Other than that, it’s all about gaining momentum for the Big West Conference Tournament, which is scheduled for March 8-10 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Rainbow Warriors will close the regular season this week with road games at UC Davis on Thursday, and at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday. Hawai’i is 16-11 overall and 7-7 in the conference.

UC Davis is 19-9 and 10-4, and one of four teams still in contention for the regular-season championship. Cal State Fullerton is 16-10 and 9-5, and needs to win both of its remaining games to have an outside shot at the regular-season title (other contenders will have to lose).

For Hawai’i to earn the No. 4 seed for the Big West Tournament, it will have to go 2-0 this week and have Cal State Fullerton go 0-2.

If the Warriors go 1-1 or 0-2, it will be either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed, pending the results of Long Beach State.

  1. Confused! Can anyone account for who will be on scholarship next year and if we have any to offer a recruit?

  2. I believe if everyone eligible returns, they’ll have one scholarship to offer — the one vacated by Jaaron Stallworth earlier this season. Three have already been spoken for in the three bigs who signed in the fall.
