LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The Bison will be roaming off the mainland next December. The Bucknell men's basketball team has been added to the field for the 2018 Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic, where it will join tournament host Hawai'i along with Charlotte, Colorado, Indiana State, Rhode Island, TCU and UNLV. 

This will be Bucknell's first-ever trip to Hawai'i. Games will be played Dec. 22, 23 and 25 at the Stan Sheriff Center on Hawai'i's campus in Honolulu. Pairings will be announced at a later date. 

The Bison have plenty of business to attend to this season, with a Patriot League Tournament semifinal game coming up on Sunday against Boston University at 2 p.m. at Sojka Pavilion. Bucknell is 23-9 after beating Loyola 83-78 in the quarterfinal round on Thursday.
