Maui Jim Maui Classic hosted by Oregon State
The 3rd annual Maui Jim Maui Classic hosted by Oregon State, a Women’s NCAA Division I College Basketball Tournament, will be held Dec 14th and 15th, 2018. These four games will feature Oregon State as well as Texas A&M, Eastern Washington Eagles and University of California Riverside Highlanders.
Last year, over 4,000 Hawaii residents were in attendance to watch these world-class basketball games. Thousands of dollars in prizes were given away from multiple Maui Jim sunglasses to TWO Alaska Airline tickets. This year’s two-day tournament will be bigger than ever featuring two games per day, multiple local food trucks, and a chance to win a luxurious staycation package courtesy of the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa.
Going above the game of basketball, Maui Jim Maui Classic athletes will also visit elementary schools across Maui to emphasize the important role academics play in athletics. The athletes will be paired with elementary students at multiple Maui schools and will spend time reading to them as well as encouraging them to take their life to the next level through education and sports.
