Schedule change: Warriors stay home to host Cal Poly this week

A change of schedule will keep the University of Hawai’i basketball team at home for two games this week, instead of on the road.

The Rainbow Warriors will host Cal Poly on Friday (February 5) and Saturday (Februrary 6) at SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. Both games will start at 7 p.m., and will be televised on Spectrum Sports.

Hawai’i was originally scheduled to play road games at UC San Diego this week, but those games were canceled in favor or making up previously-canceled games against Cal Poly. Cal Poly had a scheduled bye this week, and thus was available to make the late adjustment.

Hawai’i was originally slated to host Cal Poly on December 27 and 28, but the Mustangs did not make the flight to Honolulu due to COVID-19 issues within their program.

Both Cal Poly games will count in the Big West Conference standings. The games against UC San Diego would not have counted in the standings because UCSD is a provisional member of the Big West.

Hawai’i is 5-5 overall and 3-5 in the Big West. Cal Poly is 3-11 and 1-7.

Here is the official announcement from www.hawaiiathletics.com including a schedule change for the UH women’s team …

HONOLULU – In a change of schedule, both the University of Hawai’i men’s and women’s basketball squads will face Cal Poly in Big West conference action this week. The men will host the Mustangs on Friday, Feb. 5 and Saturday, Feb. 6 at SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. The women meanwhile, will travel to San Luis Obispo to face the Mustangs on the road on those same dates.
Both men’s games will be broadcast on Spectrum Sports and ESPN Honolulu with tip times at 7 p.m. The game times for the women’s games are to be determined. 
In late December, the UH men’s and women were set to open up Big West play against Cal Poly. However each series was called off due to COVID-related issues. A bye for Cal Poly this weekend allowed the opportunity for the teams to make up their previously canceled series.
The ‘Bows were originally slated to face UC San Diego this week, with the women hosting the Tritons at home and the men playing UCSD on the road.  The schools mutually decided to cancel those contests.
