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.
