Hawaii’s 72-70 win over Idaho in the WAC Tournament today was one of the biggest in recent years for UH. The Rainbow Warriors came into the game without their top 3-point shooter and second-leading scorer, Zane Johnson, and had lost five games in a row. Also, they hadn’t won a WAC Tournament game since 2005.
To me, it changes the complexion of what might have ended as a losing season. That is guaranteed to not be the case as UH is now 16-15 overall. Tomorrow’s column is about how UH fans can dream for even more, since this is the time of year for that kind of thing.
Is there magic left for tomorrow night against New Mexico State? (By the way, this game will be televised by KFVE at 4 p.m. and repeated at 9:30 p.m.)
Coach Gib Arnold said it is the biggest win in his coaching career, even before UH.
Where do you rank it among UH’s all-time wins?
