The Hawaii women's basketball team earned its first win over a Division I opponent this season with a 66-55 defeat of Columbia on Saturday in New York.

UH (2-7) stopped a seven-game losing streak and earned a split on the farthest road trip in program history despite committing 22 turnovers at Levien Gymnasium.


Sophomore forward Kamilah Jackson led the Rainbow Wahine with her third double-double of the season — 16 points and 11 rebounds. Sophomore wing Shawna Kuehu added 13 points, four assists and four steals.


Senior guard/forward Courtney Gaddis came off the bench to score a career-high 14 points with six rebounds. She hit both of her 3-point attempts and all six of her free throws.


The Wahine shot 46.3 percent from the field, yielding a season high in points, compared to 31.6 percent for Columbia.


After leading 33-28 at halftime, UH went on a 15-3 run to open the second period to take a 48-31 lead. The closest the Lions would get in the second half was six points.


Taylor Ward led the Lions (1-7) of the Ivy League with 20 points.


UH doesn't play again until Dec. 18-20 in the four-team Chevron Rainbow Wahine Shootout at the Stan Sheriff Center.
