Rainbow Wahine basketball fends off Cal State Fullerton

Hawaii senior Destiny King scored nine of her 12 points in the fourth quarter and the Rainbow Wahine basketball team held off Cal State Fullerton 62-53 tonight at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Foul trouble limited King to three points through three quarters, but she scored UH’s first seven points of the fourth and the Wahine passed the Titans, who had overcome a 13-point first-half deficit to take a 47-46 lead with 6:50 left in the game.

After the Titans edged ahead, King sparked a 14-4 UH run and the Wahine improved to 11-9 overall and 4-3 in Big West play. Cal State Fullerton fell to 2-18 and 0-6.

UH guard Briana Harris matched King for team-high honors with 12 points and forward Megan Huff added 10 points and the Wahine bench accounted for 33 points before a crowd of 622.

Cal State Fullerton freshman Michelle Berry secured her fourth straight double-double and eighth of the season by halftime and finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds in the Titans’ 18th straight loss.

  • Here is our two pennies. After this team lost the close one at UC Davis, that should have been enough motivation for everyone on this team to say that’s not happening again.

    Almost get the impression after the other losses this team did not feel like they got knocked down at all. What is up with that??

    Think most other teams that have worked so hard to get where they are would have the attitude to get back up on their feet and play their butts off.

    So, how is the discipline on this team, and what do their practices look like? Think coach has to seriously challenge these players. For those players that don’t get it, sit. For those that do, play. Play their best, and the rewards will come.

    Final note, liked Kennedy’s attitude during post game interview. Just wish she showed more fight. Yes, it’s a process, but not seeing it happening on the court.

  • Winning teams have the least amount of distractions. They have a really tight group of people working towards the same common goal.
