Rainbow Warriors hoping to carry momentum into final homestand

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Coming off a two-game road sweep this past weekend, the Rainbow Warrior basketball team is flying high and is hoping to keep this momentum going this weekend in their final two home games of the season.

"I think our guys got our spark a little bit back in terms of playing with the intensity and fire necessary to give ourselves a chance anywhere, obviously on the road," said head coach Eran Ganot.

After beating UC Irvine and UC Riverside, the Warriors are 6-6 in Big West Conference play, but the team isn't too concerned about their win-loss record at the moment. With the regular season coming to a close, it's all about being ready for postseason play.

"I think we are just looking to have that same mentality we had on the road -- working hard, having fun while doing it," said Gibson Johnson. "But working hard with the mindset of getting more wins."

The Warriors will play host to Long Beach State this Thursday at the Stan Sheriff Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. HT.
