Hawaii vs. Long Beach State
This did not go as I'd planned. Big home crowd. Big game. Winnable, defeat-able team. It wasn't the start to a four-game homestand that UH (14-6, 3-3 Big West) envisioned. LBSU (8-12, 3-3) shot 60 percent, a season-high mark for a Rainbow Warriors opponent, and knocked UH off its perch as the last Big West team to avoid a league defeat in its own building (and a lofty perch this was indeed.) We've always been good at home, but particularly for a young team, dominant home records are always important because they serve as confidence builders more than anything else. Also curious is the fact that Gib has seemingly decided to bench Aaron Valdes and Mike Thomas in favor of rotating Davis into the lineup along with Jovanovic at F. Can we fix the problems that plagued us (particularly in the defensive end?) We will see. LBSU was able to get into the paint anytime they wanted. We need to stop that moving forward.
