A Big West Conference regular-season title will be difficult to attain for the Hawaii women's basketball team after the Rainbow Wahine fell 62-60 at leader Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Calif., today.

UH (11-10, 5-4 Big West) completed its four-game, 11-day road trip with a 1-3 mark. Cal Poly (14-8, 8-1) extended its lead over third-place UH to three games with seven to play, and the Mustangs own the tiebreaker thanks to their home-and-home sweep of the Wahine.

Laura Beeman's team trimmed an 11-point second-half deficit to one when Kamilah Jackson went to her left hand to make it 58-57 with 47 seconds left.

Jackson blocked a layup attempt out of bounds, but Poly guard Ariana Elegado (25 points) stuck a floater with 19 seconds left on the inbounds play.

Coming out of a timeout, UH center Pua Kailiawa was long on a tying 3-point attempt. Elegado grabbed the rebound, was fouled and made both for a five-point lead with four seconds to go.

UH's Destiny King hit a long 3-pointer at the buzzer for the final margin.

Jackson and Shawna Kuehu led the Wahine with 14 points apiece in the loss.

A hard fought game once again lost at the free throw line, and too many missed layups. Hope they can finally get that solved by the time the BW Tournament rolls around. Go Bows!
