UH basketball to play Chaminade on Molokai

September 5, 2012 - Robert Collias
The University of Hawaii men's basketball team will play Chaminade in "The Barn" on Molokai on Dec. 15, the school announced on its athletics website today when it unveiled the men's basketball schedule for 2012-13.

“We play for and represent all of Hawai'i,” UH head coach Gib Arnold said on the website. “We're grateful for the support of our neighbor island fans and want them to know how much we appreciate them. We're thrilled to play on Moloka'i and thank Chaminade and the people of Moloka'i for making this possible.”

It is believed to be the first time any UH team has played a game on the Friendly Isle.

Brandyn Akana, a former standout for Molokai High School and BYU-Hawaii, is a current assistant coach for Arnold. Akana's older brother, Jarrin Akana, was the 1988 state player of the year for the Farmers and went on to play for BYUH and Hawaii. Jarrin Akana has been an assistant coach for several NBA teams.

The Rainbows beat Chicago State two years ago at the Lahaina Civic Center and Hawaii downed North Carolina A&T at War Memorial Gym last season.
