Wahine basketball team falls at Grand Canyon

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:29 p.m. HST, Dec 23, 2013

The Hawaii women's basketball team came up short, 54-51, against Grand Canyon in Phoenix today.

UH (6-6) got a distant heave from Shawna Kuehu at the buzzer aiming for the tie, but her shot ricocheted off the backboard.

The Wahine took the lead for the first time midway through the second half but the Antelopes (10-2), in their first season of Division I up from the PacWest Conference, rallied back.

Senior forward Kamilah Jackson led UH with 14 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in the loss.

Laura Beeman's team does not play again until Big West Conference action begins against Cal Poly on Jan. 8.

Nice hard effort by the Wahine in a winnable game, however, torpedoed by way too many turnovers. I think the team will be working hard on improving their passing in practice. Go Bows!

I'm imagining the entire team simultaneously tripping, stubbing their toes, and falling down, down, down, into the Grand Canyon....
