Expectations are high for the 2023-24 University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors men’s basketball team. The program returns nine players and three starters from last year’s squad that won 22 games, captured two preseason tournaments, and remained in contention for the Big West title until the very last day of the regular season. The Rainbow Warriors are led by ninth-year head coach Eran Ganot who has led UH to six straight winning seasons and holds the best win percentage of any UH coach.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Vaqueros are looking to take their next big step forward this season after winning 15 games last year. The Vaqueros boast plenty of size with four players who are 6-10 or taller and an average roster height of 6-6. The front court returns both of last season’s starters, including Ahren Freeman, who was featured on Sportscenter’s Top 10 plays for a buzzer-beating layup against Western Illinois, and Daylen Williams, who did the same against eventual WAC Tournament Champion Grand Canyon on the road.
