After a road sweep last weekend, the University of Hawai’i men’s basketball team returns home for a pair of home games, beginning with CSUN on Thursday, Jan. 27. Tipoff is 7:00 p.m. at the SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center. 

The Rainbow Warriors (9-5) are on a season-long five game win streak and currently sit in a tie for first place in the Big West standings with a perfect 4-0 mark. The ‘Bows seek its fifth straight conference win when it takes on the Matadors (5-12, 1-4), which would tie the 2015-16 squad for UH’s best-ever Big West start. CSUN takes on UC Santa Barbara on Tuesday night, before heading out to Honolulu.
