Hawaii Swish ABA tick­ets on sale

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS - Star-Ad­ver­tiser staff

Tick­ets for the Feb. 10 de­but of a new lo­cal Amer­i­can Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion pro­fes­sional fran­chise, the Hawaii

Swish, go on sale at 9 a.m. to­day at the Blais­dell Box Of­fice.

The Swish have sched­uled an ab­bre­vi­ated six-game slate — with the idea of a full go next sea­son — start­ing with the Yuba City Gold­min­ers at the Blais­dell Arena.

The team is com­prised partly of for­mer Univer­sity of Hawaii play­ers, in­clud­ing owner/guard Geremy Robin­son, point guard Miah Ostrowski and guard Ja­son Carter. It is co­coached by ex-Rain­bow War­riors Johnny White and Ar­tie Wil­son.

“First thing we want to do is put on a good show, and win in the process for the fans in Hawaii,” Robin­son said. “I feel the com­mu­nity has been long await­ing for this to hap­pen. It’s been a tease for so long. Now the ship is fi­nally go­ing to be sail­ing. Now it’s up to the team to take care of busi­ness on the floor.”

Hawaii’s past ABA ven­tures — in­clud­ing the re­cently moved Hawaii Ham­mer­heads — were short-lived and never played in a venue the size of the Blais­dell.

Tick­ets (for the opener only) are $10 for adults; $7 for cur­rent and re­tired mil­i­tary mem­bers as well as se­nior cit­i­zens (62-over); and $6 for stu­dents.

For more in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing the rest of the sched­ule, visit the team’s Face­book page at www.SwishHawaii.com.
