Hawaii senior Noah Allen scored a season-high 24 points and the Rainbow Warriors drained 13 3-pointers as a team in an 86-55 rout of UH Hilo tonight at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Coming off a spirited effort in an 83-68 loss to No. 4 North Carolina last Friday, the Rainbow Warriors (3-2) hit five of their first six shots to open up a double-digit lead less than 4 minutes into the game and cruised past the Division II Vulcans (1-3) before a crowd of 2,078.

UH exceeded its previous season high by draining nine 3-pointers in the first half and raced out to a 45-24 halftime lead.

Allen ended the night with six 3-pointers and shot 9-for-14 from the field overall.

Guard Sheriff Drammeh went 3-for-3 from behind the arc in the first half and finished with 16 points. Forward Gibson Johnson added 14 points and eight rebounds and guard Brocke Stepteau set career highs with 11 points and seven assists.

The Rainbow Warriors combined to dish out 24 assists on their 31 made baskets and held a 42-33 rebounding advantage.

UH Hilo forward Brian Ishola scored the Vulcans’ first eight points and finished with 18.

The Rainbow Warriors continue their season-opening homestand Friday against Troy and face Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Sunday.
