Down Under Tour update

The University of Hawai’i basketball team has already spent two days in Brisbane, Australia, to start its 2018 Down Under Tour.

The Rainbow Warriors got in a 90-minute practice at Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium yesterday, followed by some sightseeing and shopping.

The Warriors are scheduled to play their first exhibition game of the tour late Friday night (Saturday in Australia) against the Brisbane Bullets.

  1. ‘Bows. Come Up Short to Brisbane Bulletts 73-54
    In a Very Physical game against an older, more mature NBL Professional Team, the ‘Bows struggled with turnovers and executing their offense against tight man pressure. Trailing 20-22 with two seconds left in the first half, UH committed an inbounding violation and Brisbane converted in those two seconds to lead at the half 24-20.

    That last first half field goal was the start of an 11-0 run as Brisbane stepped up their defensive intensity
    and offensive execution in the second half taking a controlling 33-20 lead. UH was able to battle back, and cut that lead in half to 47-42, but a steady diet of interior passing, more mature height and timely outside shooting allowed Brisbane to
    pull away in the fourth quarter.

    Newcomers redshirt Maté Colina, Dawson Carper and Eddie Stansberry all acquitted themselves quite well in their unofficial UH debuts, with Stansberry the only ‘Bow in double figures, of the ten who scored, Brisbane’s balanced attack had five players in double figures.

    1) 10-12
    2) 10-12
    3) 22-25
