Billings Volcanos (basketball)
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The Billings Volcanos were an American basketball team based in Billings, Montana that was a member of the Continental Basketball Association. From 1979-80, they were called the Hawaii Volcanos. The team name is spelled "Volcanos," even though the proper plural spelling for volcano would be "volcanoes."
The Hawaii Volcanos were an American basketball team based in Honolulu, Hawaii and Hilo, Hawaii that was a member of the Continental Basketball Association. The franchise played at several venues in Hawaii, including the Neal Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, the Conroy Bowl at Schofield Barracks, the gymnasium at Kaimuki High School, and two games at the Hilo Civic Auditorium.
The franchise did make the playoffs, but because of the tremendous travel costs between Honolulu and Anchorage (the Volcanos' opponent), the Volcanos agreed to play all the playoff games for that series in Anchorage, where they lost the best-of-five series to the Northern Knights.
