Basketball Lions to compete in Hawaii

HONOLULU — Arkansas-Pine Bluff is one of four teams that will comprise the field for the men’s basketball Rainbow Classic in November at the University of Hawaii’s Stan Sheriff Center, the UH announced Tuesday.

UAPB will play Houston Baptist on Nov. 9, Hawaii on Nov. 11 and Maryland-Eastern Shore on Nov. 12. Game times have not yet been announced.

UAPB last played at Hawaii on Nov. 24, 2010, losing to the Warriors 70-63.

This will be the 48th Rainbow Classic, but first since the 2010-11 season. Scheduling problems forced the cancellation of the event for last season, the Star-Advertiser reported.
