HILO, Hawai`i—Tonight’s (Thursday) women’s and men’s basketball games between Hawai`i Hilo and California Baptist have been postponed due to unsafe floor conditions at the UH Hilo Gymnasium.

Hilo has been hit with heavy rainfall in the last 24 hours, and that combined with high humidity (97%) has rendered the playing surface unsafe. “With the safety of the student-athletes from both teams our highest priority, the decision was made to reschedule the women’s and men’s games,” said UH Hilo athletic director Patrick Guillen.

No make-up date has been determined at this time.  No final decisions has been yet regarding Saturday’s games against Biola University or Monday’s games against Concordia.
