“(This) is one of the great tournaments that helps get the collegiate season jump-started,” UW coach Lorenzo Romar said in a school release. “It’s an exciting time. Everyone watched it, and the competition is always very stiff. Our team has never had an opportunity to participate, so we’re all very excited.”
The tournament runs Nov. 22-24 at Lahaina Civic Center on the Hawaiian island of Maui.
