BOISE -- The Boise State men's basketball team (7-2) will face the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (7-2) on Saturday at 11:00 p.m. MST in Honolulu, Hawaii as part of the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.

The football players aren't the only one's headed to Hawaii. They will also be accompanied by the Boise State men's basketball team. With that in mind, head coach Leon Rice said his team will gladly trade in their snow-shovels for sun tan lotion.

The Broncos will play against a field that not includes Hawaii but also includes Oregon State, Iowa State, Saint Mary's.

When asked the distractions on Honolulu, coach Rice to hold back laugh when talking about his team's serious approach.

Business trips, people always throw that one out there. All they do is screw around on business trips right? I mean geez, so we're not on a business trip, we're on a mission. That's my take, laughed Rice.
