UH-Hilo Women’s Basketball Announces 2022-23 Schedule
The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo women’s basketball team’s 2022-23 schedule features seven non-conference matchups all at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium in Hilo, giving the Vulcans two months of play without ever needing to leave the state.
Four of those games are part of the Big Island Holiday Classic in November and December. Rounding out the non-conference schedule will be a pair of games with Multnomah University and a contest with NCAA Division I University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which won the Mountain West Conference last season.
UH-Hilo opens Pacific West Conference action with back-to-back series against Hawai‘i Pacific University and Chaminade University of Honolulu, first on O‘ahu then back in Hilo, before the end of the calendar year. The Vulcans will host six PacWest games at home in January 2023 against Point Loma Nazarene, Concordia Irvine, Dominican, Academy of Art, Azusa Pacific and Biola.
The women will fly to the mainland for the first time for the 2022-23 season in late January for a four-game itinerary with Northern California teams Holy Names, Fresno Pacific, Dominican and Academy of Art. Finishing out the conference schedule, the Vulcans will have their final home games Feb. 8 and 11 before a four-game slate later in February in Southern California.
David Kaneshiro, the 13th-year head coach for the Vulcan women’s team, said his squad is looking forward to the 2022-23 season.
“We are excited about the additional home games in the Big Island Classic and we know the PacWest schedule will be very difficult again this year,” Kaneshiro said in a press release. “But our team is working hard and we look forward to the challenges of the upcoming season.”
