The Troy Trojans are on the road for a match up against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. Hawaii will be hosting this game at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, HI. Hawaii will be hosting this match up for the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic and we should be in for a good night of basketball. Troy and Hawaii are both playing on their last legs with two games pretty close to back-to-back. This game will likely come down to the team who wants it more.
The Troy Trojans will be taking the court with a team that was built to get things done on the wings. Guard Wesley Person exploded for 25 points on opening night and he's an early favorite to lead Troy in shots taken and points scored. Troy needs to show that they can compete with tough home teams like Hawaii in order to have some home for the rest of the season.
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors are going to be busy on the court with the home crowd behind them. Forward Gibson Johnson is going to be our player to highlight in this game as his blend of athletic play and scoring ability makes him an exciting guy to watch. Hawaii has been dominant at times defensively this year and the Rainbow Warriors should have what it takes to slow down Troy's middling offense. Hawaii's home crowd will help push the Rainbow Warriors into heavy favorites.
Free Betting Pick: Hawaii Warriors -2.5
