Hawaii Big West Men’s Basketball Schedule Released

The Big West has announced the 2022-23 league schedule in which the University of Hawaii men’s basketball team will open on December 29, have periods of four games in eight days and close the regular season on the road.

UH coach Eran Ganot noted that the schedule was the result of submissions from the 11 Big West coaches. “You go back and forth and decisions are made,” Ganot said. “Establishing a conference program is not an easy task, especially with certain challenges and circumstances. Once that schedule is announced, we’re excited about it. This is our mentality. We hope to play in the first of the real 20-game (league) schedule and go from there.

Due to the pandemic, the start of the 2020-2021 season has been delayed. The UH-UC San Diego two-game series was canceled in 2021 due to protocols associated with the Tritons. Last season, three of the Rainbow Warriors’ Big West games were canceled.

“For the past two years, a 20-game conference schedule was planned, but it didn’t end up going that way because of the COVID challenges,” Ganot said. “Hopefully this (coming) season will be the year where every game takes place.”

The UH league schedule typically schedules games on Thursday and Saturday nights. There will be two games on Monday which create crowded schedules.

“We are playing,” Ganot said of four games in eight days. “It’s our mentality. It beats the alternative. … For the past two years, it hasn’t been balanced. Some teams have played more (league) games than others. Some teams have had more home games. But great teams will perform well no matter the circumstances.

Ganot also expressed support for Gibson Johnson, who resigned as UH’s director of player development to accept an assistant coaching position at Utah Tech (formerly known as Dixie State).

“It’s hard to lose him,” Ganot said of Johnson. “He is part of the family. He played here. He was a captain here. He is trained here. He rose through the ranks. He was (graduate assistant). He was director of development. The next logical step for him was to be in the field (as a full-time assistant) and be on the road (as a recruiter). What a great young man. What a beautiful family. We will miss him and we will support him. »
