LIHU‘E — The red-hot University of Hawai‘i men’s basketball team (16-10, 6-7 WAC) plays its final regular season home game of the year when it hosts New Mexico State tonight.
Seniors Bill Amis, Douglas Kurtz and Hiram Thompson will be honored at the conclusion of the game as part Senior Night festivities, states a release from the UH athletic department.
Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center, the game being broadcast live on KFVE.
The ‘Bows, who have won seven of their past nine games, locked up a spot in next month’s Western Athletic Conference Tournament with a convincing 71-58 win over Louisiana Tech on Thursday. Amis scored 18 points, leading four players in double-digits as the ‘Bows led by 19 at the break and by as many as 25 points in the second half. With the win, UH also moved within one game of fifth place in the WAC standings and assured itself of finishing the year with a winning record — a first since the 2006-07 season.
UH will take on a New Mexico State squad (14-14, 8-5 WAC) that remains in second in the WAC standings after a 72-70 overtime loss at San Jose State on Wednesday. The Aggies defeated the ‘Bows 82-64 this year in Las Cruces.
Following tonight’s game, the Rainbow Warriors will conclude their WAC regular season schedule on the road with games at San Jose State (Thursday) and Fresno State (March 5).
