Fans will get their first extended glimpse of the University of Hawaii men's basketball team when it holds its Green & White Scrimmage on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Stan Sheriff Center. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and admission is free.
 
Following player introductions, the Rainbow Warriors will conduct an intra-squad scrimmage, which will include two 20-minutes halves. The team will also have a dunk contest at halftime of the scrimmage. At the conclusion of the evening, fans will get the chance to meet the players and coaches with an autograph session.

Among the returnees are senior forward Christian Standhardinger, a first-team all-league selection, and Isaac Fotu, last year's Big West Co-Freshman of the Year.
 
UH will host BYU-Hawai'i in an exhibition on Halloween Night, before opening the 2013-14 regular season against Tennessee State on Nov. 8 in the Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Rainbow Classic.
