In the final season of the ESPNU BracketBusters event, the Hawaii men’s basketball team drew Northern Arizona of the Big Sky Conference, ESPN announced today.
The Feb. 23 game at the Stan Sheriff Center was not selected as one of a handful to be televised nationally.
The Lumberjacks (7-14 overall) are the second straight Big Sky team UH was paired up with in BracketBusters. The Rainbow Warriors went to Montana last season and lost 94-79.
NAU is currently seventh in the Big Sky at 4-7.
ESPN announced in December that the BracketBusters event, which for 11 years has paired up mid-major programs to improve their postseason profiles, would be discontinued after this season.
