UH men's basketball game won't be televised

By Ferd Lewis

LAST UPDATED: 01:47 p.m. HST, Mar 20, 2013

Due to lower than expected ticket sales, the University of Hawaii said tonight's Collegeinsider.com Tournament men's basketball game with the Air Force Academy will not be televised locally.

UH had said sales would have to hit the estimated break even point of 6,500 before it would allow its TV partner, Oceanic Time Warner Cable, to air the game.

Tipoff is 7 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center.

UH did not say how many tickets had been sold as of this morning, saying only, "ticket sales are lower than expected."

I have a hunch this was more of a reluctant CIT acceptance in order to ensure UH's most successful basketball coach (Wallace) doesn't get humiliated by being turned down for an invite to his old team.

Don't think to many people would attend a game on a weekday especially if they have to work the next day,also don't think people happy that UH had to pay in order to play in this tournament. See what happens.

Didn't Ben Jay say he wasn't going to "pay to play" in a third or fourth tier tournament?

Perhaps Mr. Jay is out of his element in Hawaii. Seems like 2 major mistakes already made in his short stay here - Name Change and Pay to Play. I don't believe this was for the players - more like giving the coach underserved bonuses.

Nice to see at least one true fan show support. I'm disappointed in the lack of enthusiasm and loyalty I see.

No big deal, got better things to do then trying to figure out which team will show up. Hopefully next year we I'll see more consistent coaching and playing.
