Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic
In the week leading up to Christmas, the fifth annual Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic sets out to reward well-behaved college hoops fans with a gift of 12 games over three days. Each squad competes in one game a day as the eight-team field advances through the bracket-style tournament. At the end, the two undefeated teams face off in the championship game, while the losers of each contest continue to pair off for final third- through seventh-place matches.
In last year’s title game, Arizona beat San Diego State in a 68–67 nailbiter. This time around, Iowa State and George Mason get the tournament started with what should be an equally close match-up. A year ago, the Cyclones boasted the fourth-best offense in the country, netting 80 points per game en route to a solid 23-12 record. Across the court, the Patriots counter the Cyclones’ attack by erecting sandbags around senior guard Sherrod Wright, whose 17 points per game led the team in scoring last season.
