The championship game between West Virginia and Hawaii at the Bank of Hawai‘i Rainbow Wahine Classic was over just about the time I went to bed last night.

During the 2013 Bank of Hawai‘i Rainbow Wahine Classic trophy ceremony, celebration gave way to chaos as a brawl broke out in the stands just behind visiting West Virginia’s bench.
Hawai‘i and WVU fans began trading blows, and a West Virginia assistant coach was also involved. Meanwhile, University of Hawai‘i Athletics Director Ben Jay, who was attempting to calm the fighting, was struck before walking to the middle of the Stan Sheriff Center court and seeking medical attention.
