The BYU–Hawaii Seasiders men's basketball team represents Brigham Young University–Hawaii in NCAA Division II college basketball play. The team has attended 6 NAIA Tournaments and attended 11 NCAA D2 Tournaments. The Seasiders participate as members of the Pacific West Conference.


BYU-Hawaii fielded its first collegiate basketball team in 1978. As members of the NAIA, they were able to develop early rivalries with fellow state schools Chaminade University of Honolulu, Hawaii Pacific University, and University of Hawaii at Hilo. These three rivalries continue to this day. In its 33-year history, the Seasiders have won 597 wins, 62% of the games they have played. The Seasiders are also one of the founders of the Pacific West Conference.

While in the NAIA, BYU-Hawaii made the tournament 6 times, Four of those appearances occurred under coach Ken Wagner. In his second season, Wagner led BYU-Hawaii to the 1992 NAIA Final Four. Wagner would lead the Seasiders back to the NAIA Playoffs in 1996, 1997, and 1998 with two second round appearances and a first round appearance.

The Seasiders would transition to NCAA D2 status in the 1998–99 season.
