Hawaii Betting Trends
Perhaps the most heartening part of its season-opening victory over Mississippi Valley State for Hawaii was the play of senior guard Samuta Avea.
Avea scored 20 points in his first game after missing the previous two seasons. He opted out in 2020-21 because of the COVID-19 pandemic then missed last season with a back injury.
