Bullet About the Rainbows: Hawaii comes off an 86-75 season-opening loss to Louisville in which the Rainbows turned the ball over 17 times and shot 3-of-15 from 3-point range. The eligibility of projected starting center Haim Shimonovic remains uncertain and he is not expected to play tomorrow. The probable starting lineup includes two players who didn't start against Louisville: G Mike McIntyre (6-3, 205, Jr.; 4.0 ppg, 3.0 apg) at point, and F Bosko Radovic (6-9, 220, Fr.; 9 ppg, 3.0 rpg) at post.

Ostler sat out practice yesterday with a sinus infection, but Wallace said he should be ready to go tomorrow.

Bullet About the Lions -- Southeastern Louisiana's victories were Saturday over Dillard, 77-45, and Tuesday at Florida A&M, 76-65. For the second game in a row, Hawaii faces scoring guards in Marcus Kemp (6-1, 174, Sr.; 13.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg) and Jamaal Wolfe (5-10, 154, Sr.; 16.0 ppg, 1.0 apg).

Elon was 13-15 overall last year, but finished third in the Southern Conference.
