Hawaii's season begins now

With Matt Gibson's return, Hawaii can now get on with its 'real' starting five and see how competitive the team will fare this season. Unlike some of the other squads in the WAC with injuries and players out as a result, Hawaii had no true replacement for the injured Gibson.

Let's see how they do.

On what is being marketed as "Military Night," the University of Hawai'i men's basketball team will unveil a secret weapon tonight when it hosts Coppin State at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Matt Gibson will make his much-anticipated season debut tonight after sitting out the first four games with an injured left knee.

"There's going to be no hesitation on my part," Gibson said. "I tested my body and it's ready. I'm ready, no doubt. Are they ready for me? That's the question."

The Rainbow Warriors got off to a 1-3 start without Gibson. He was slated to start the season opener, but injured his knee during a practice two days before.

Gibson, a 6-foot-5 senior point guard, averaged 10.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game last season...
