Hawaii proved itself more than ready to snap out of a two-game slide. The Rainbow Warriors pounced on slumping Long Beach State 78-59 with big nights from four players and evened their Big West record at 7-7 as the conference tournament looms.
It took just four pitches for Hawaii to record its first two outs in Thursday's matchup against California. The Rainbow Wahine would stay on the field for 33 more before heading into the dugout.
This time, it wasn't quite so close. When they last met, Kalaheo needed a buzzer-beating putback by Alec MacLeod to edge Punahou in the final of the Punahou Invitational two months ago.
