It’s that time of year, folks. The 2022-23 basketball season is upon us, and teams from the University of Hawaii at Hilo are wrapping up the first week with an intro event.

The men’s and women’s teams will host Vulcan Madness beginning at 5 p.m. on October 23 at the Vulcan Gymnasium on the UH-Hilo campus. Both teams opened the season last weekend with their first official training sessions.

Vulcan Madness is open to all ages and serves as an introduction to 2022-23 teams. The free event will feature a three-point shooting contest and a dunk contest showcase as well as other games, contests and giveaways. Food and snacks will also be available.
