Aloha! Charlotte 49ers Men’s Basketball Team Returns to Annual Tournament in Hawaii

CHARLOTTE (CHARLOTTE SPORTS LIVE) — The Charlotte 49ers men’s basketball team returns to Hawaii to play in Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic– the school announced on Wednesday.

The 15th edition of the tournament will feature eight teams and 12 matches to be held on December 22, 23 and 25 at SimpliFi Arena at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu.

The 49ers last played in Hawaii in this same tournament during the 2018-19 season.

The remaining seven teams this year are College of Charleston, Hawaii, Loyola Chicago, Nebraska, Murray State, and Oakland. Each team will play three games, with the two undefeated teams competing in the championship game on the final day.

The 49ers are coming off an impressive 2023-24 season, going 19-12 in their first season in the American Athletic Conference. Charlotte’s third-place finish in the conference last season was the team’s best finish in league play since 2006.
