The University of Hawai’i Rainbow Warrior will play three games in a six-day stretch, starting with a match-up versus UH Hilo on Tuesday, Nov. 22. Tipoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center.

The Rainbow Warrior will also host Troy (Nov. 25, 8:00 p.m.) and Arkansas-Pine Bluff (Nov. 27, 7:00 p.m.) during the stretch. UH looks to bounce back following an 83-68 loss to No. 5 North Carolina before a sellout crowd at the Stan Sheriff Center on Nov. 18.

The ‘Bows will look to do it against a Vulcan squad that they have dominated over the years. UH is undefeated in eight previous meetings between the teams with the games being decided by an average of 25.4 points. This will mark the fifth regular-season meeting in the last six years between UH and UH Hilo.
