’Bows hope for success vs. Spartans
A storm that socked the West Coast yesterday made for a bumpy journey for the Hawaii basketball team.
Hawaii (4-9, 0-1 WAC) at San Jose State (6-6, 0-1)
When: Today, 5 p.m.
Where: The Event Center
Radio: KKEA 1420-AM
Safely on the ground in San Jose, the Rainbow Warriors will try to continue their run of success there when they face San Jose State today at The Event Center to cap their Western Athletic Conference road trip.
Tip-off between the Rainbows (4-9, 0-1 WAC) and Spartans (6-6, 0-1) is set for 5 p.m. Hawaii time.
Just getting into San Jose turned into an adventure yesterday. The Rainbows' flight from Salt Lake City couldn't land initially due to high winds and was diverted to Fresno to refuel. The flight was able to land in San Jose on its second attempt, though the plane was jostled by heavy turbulence.
"It's one of the scarier flights I've been on," UH coach Bob Nash said. "We were really rocking and rolling up there."
On the court, the Rainbows have won the last nine meetings with the Spartans, including the last four in San Jose. They're coming off an 86-80 loss at Utah State on Thursday. San Jose State opened WAC play with a 78-63 loss at Boise State on Wednesday.
A severe snowstorm also resulted in the postponement of today's WAC game between Utah State and Nevada in Reno. A makeup date has yet to be determined.
