Hawaii vs Northern Arizona

Hawaii's good second half upends NAU 76-66


  •  

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) Garrett Nevels led Hawaii with 24 points and they bested NAU 76-66 on Saturday night.

The score was even at 25 at intermission with Hawaii-averaging 87 points per game- making up for a rebound disadvantage (17-13) by forcing ten NAU turnovers.

Both teams opened aggressively in the second half with 21 points scored in the first 3 minutes. By the time play relaxed, Hawaii led 45-37 following a pair of Nevels jumpers and Davis Rozitis layups.

The Warriors (6-2) maintained that margin over the next six minutes before opening a 17-point lead with 4:54 remaining. The Lumberjacks (2-7) closed the gap to eight, but Hawaii's Keith Shamburger went 8-of-8 from the free throw line in the final two minutes to preserve the win.

Hawaii also posted 14 steals and 6 blocked shots.

Galellan Bewernick scored 20 NAU points and the Lumberjacks have now lost 4 straight.
