In true ESPN tradition, the Men’s NCAA basketball season will take flight this coming weekend. With the NBA lockout in progress, the 24 hour programming schedule ESPN has lined up should prove to be a thirst quencher for basketball fans across the nation. Go to ESPN Men’s College Basketball Schedule to find out when and who your team is playing.
One of the 2011 Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic participating teams will be part of the ESPN programming line-up. The University of Hawaii Warrior basketball team will tip-off their season under the spotlight when they take on CSU Northridge.

The team is predicted to finish fourth in the Western Athletic Conference. Head Coach Gib Arnold and his Warriors look to gain momentum going into what is to be their last season as a member of the WAC, before jumping into the Big West at the start of the 2012-2013 season.
