No. 11 UCLA and Gonzaga have decided against flying to Honolulu for this week’s scheduled Hawaiian Airlines Classic women’s volleyball tournament.
The Bruins announced via Twitter this morning that they instead will be hosting the Bulldogs Saturday and Sunday.
There has been no official word from the University of Hawaii regarding its season-opening event nor what the third mainland team — Kansas State — has decided. The Wildcats are currently on Oahu.
