HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warriors have gotten off to one of the hottest starts in program history. Prior to Saturday night's game against Long Beach State, the last time the bows dropped a game it was to an Oklahoma team that is now the top ranked team in the nation.
That was day two of the Diamond Head Classic. The Rainbow Warriors had a chance to gain sole possession of the top spot in the Big West conference in front of a sell out crowd on Saturday. But, instead were handed a double digit upset courtesy of the 49ers.
"It's a disappointing loss we just didn't come out and play we didn't play right we didn't rebound we didn't defend so we didn't execute we didn't rebound, you know we always win, you know he always puts our record up on the board, I think we're 12-0 or something like that when we win the rebounding margin and we lost by 19 so he was just saying you know if we want to win we have" said senior guard, Quincy Smith.
