After a one-year hiatus, the Cougar Hardwood Classic is back. Idol Sports and Entertainment announced Tuesday morning that Washington State will host Hawaii on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014 in WSU's annual nonconference game in Seattle's KeyArena. WSU is 8-0 in the Cougar Hardwood Classic, which began in 2005, beating teams like Pepperdine, LSU and San Diego State.

"(It) is an excellent opportunity to take our program to Seattle where there are so many great Coug fans ready to come out and support us," WSU coach Ernie Kent said in a press release. "We are excited to have the chance to continue to grow the event as we battle and outstanding Hawaii team this year. It should make for a great basketball game for all the fans."

The Cougars are 5-1 all-time against the Warriors, and have won the past four contests between the schools.
