POSTED: Saturday, September 05, 2009

Hawaii women's basketball coach Dana Takahara-Dias released the 2009-10 schedule yesterday, with the Rainbow Wahine opening at UC Riverside on Nov. 17. It is the first time they open on the road since 1982.

UH will play only five nonconference games at the Stan Sheriff Center—Arizona State, East Tennessee State, San Francisco, and Kent State twice. UH's home debut is Nov. 27 against the Sun Devils, who finished last season ranked No. 12.

Hawaii will also play two games in the Brigham Young-Hawaii tournament on Dec. 4 and 5 in Laie against BYUH and BYU.

The team opens WAC play on the road for the third straight season against Fresno State on Jan. 6. The WAC tournament is in Reno, Nev., for the second straight year
