Northridge, Calif. – Aloha !!!
Cal State Northridge is heading to Honolulu for a nationally-televised men's basketball game at the University of Hawaii on November 14.
The game between the Matadors and the Rainbows is part of the ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. Nineteen men's and women's college basketball games will be seen on ESPN's family of networks including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN360.com.
The Cal State Northridge-Hawaii game is slated for ESPN.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for our basketball program to go to Hawaii and play a nationally televised game," said Bobby Braswell, who will be entering his 16th season as head coach at Cal State Northridge. "This will be a great experience for our young team."
This is the third year the ESPN network has held this event. Cal State Fullerton competed in the ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon in 2009-10 and Pacific was the Big West's representative last season.
Cal State Northridge and Hawaii will tipoff from UH's Stan Sheriff Center (10,300) on Monday, November 14 at 11 p.m. (HT). That will be at 1 a.m. (Nov. 15) on the West Coast.
