Associated Press

DAVIS, Calif. — Christian Standhardinger had 22 points with 10 rebounds and Isaac Fotu added 20 points to propel Hawaii past UC Davis 90-73 on Thursday night.

The Warriors (13-5, 2-2 Big West) erased an early 15-8 deficit, storming ahead with a 20-5 run. UC Davis pulled within four, but a quick 7-0 surge capped by a Keith Shamburger 3-pointer gave Hawaii a 45-34 halftime advantage.

Trailing by 20 in the second half, the Aggies (6-14, 1-4) hit a trio of 3-pointers to fuel a 17-6 run and cut their deficit to nine, but Hawaii countered with two Fotu layups and a Garrett Nevels 3-pointer to make it 80-64 with 4:24 remaining.

The Warriors shot 58.2 percent from the field and had all five starters in double figures. Nevels scored 16, Brandon Spearman had 15 and Shamburger chipped in 14.

Corey Hawkins paced UC Davis with 21 points and Iggy Nujic had 17.

Hawaii women 64, UC Davis 50: Kamilah Jackson finished with 18 points and nine rebounds as the Rainbow Wahine pulled away to victory at Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu.

Shawna-Lei Kuehu added 10 points and Pua Kailiawa — a Ka’u High graduate — and Ashleigh Karaitiana each had nine for UH (9-7, 3-1 Big West), which took a 25-22 lead at halftime despite only 26.7 percent shooting.

Sydnee Fipps led the Aggies (8-10, 3-2) with 17 points, including 10-of-14 shooting from the free-throw line.
