UNLV uses second-half surge to beat Hawaii 73-59

HONOLULU (AP) Joel Ntambwe scored 17 points with 11 rebounds, Kris Clyburn also scored 17 and Noah Robotham had all 16 of his points in the second half when UNLV used a big run to overtake Hawaii 73-59 at the Diamond Head Classic on Saturday.

The Runnin' Rebels (6-4) play Indiana State in a Sunday semifinal while the Rainbow Warriors (6-5) face Colorado.

Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua scored five points to give UNLV the lead and begin a 23-3 run that included two 3-pointers and nine points from Clyburn and left the Rebels ahead 56-38 with 7 1/2 minutes remaining. The Warriors missed 10 consecutive shots during UNLV's run.

Hawaii got within eight with two minutes left, but a Clyburn dunk and a Robotham 3-pointer squelched the rally.

UNLV had built a 13-point lead with 8:26 left in the first half, but the Warriors then outscored the Rebels 18-3 before the break.

Drew Buggs led Hawaii with 16 points and seven assists.
