The 2018-19 schedule is announced

A November road trip to California will include two games against Pac-12 opponents for the University of Hawai’i basketball team.

A road game at UCLA on November 28, and a previously-announced game against Utah on the opening day of the Wooden Legacy tournament are among the highlights on the 2018-19 schedule for the Rainbow Warriors.

The three-day (November 22, 23 and 25) schedule for the Wooden Legacy at Fullerton, Calif., was announced last month. The Warriors are expected to stay in Southern California after that to play UCLA at storied Pauley Pavilion on November 28.

The Warriors will open the regular season with three games on three consecutive nights as part of the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic: November 9 against Portland, November 10 against Humboldt State, and November 11 against North Texas.

Prior to that is an exhibition game against Hawai’i Pacific on November 2.
