Hawaii 96, Lamar 78
Petras Balocka scored 20 points and grabbed a career-high 20
rebounds to help Hawaii end a four-game losing streak with a 96-78
victory over Lamar on Sunday night.
The Warriors (3-4) recorded a season high in points, and
Balocka’s point total was one shy of his career-best.
Lamar (3-6), which dropped to 0-6 on the road and has lost six
of its last seven overall, was led by Kendrick Harris, who had 21
points off the bench.
Hawaii’s Roderick Flemings reached the 20-point barrier for the
second consecutive game, finishing with 22.
Hawaii used a 16-3 run over the final 2:34 of the first half and
first 1:49 of the second half to break open a one-point game. That
surge, in which Balocka scored seven points, gave the Warriors a
double-digit lead for good.
