Hawaii senior Briana Harris hit four 3-pointers in a 20-point performance and the Rainbow Wahine basketball team completed a sweep of its final regular-season road trip with a 55-45 win at Cal State Fullerton today in Fullerton, Calif.
UH guard Sarah Toeaina finished with 11 points, seven rebounds and five assists and point guard Olivia Crawford also scored 11 points for the Wahine (10-17, 6-9 Big West), who swept the season series with the Titans (4-23, 1-13).
Daeja Smith led Cal State Fullerton with 16 points and China Henderson added 11, but the Titans’ point total was the lowest for a UH opponent this season.
UH shot 32 percent from the field and went 9-for-25 from 3-point range while holding the Titans to 27 percent shooting overall. The Wahine also controlled the rebounding battle 49-30, with Makenna Woodfolk leading UH with eight.
Harris hit all three of her 3-point attempts in the first quarter, pulling up in transition to push UH ahead and hitting another off a feed from Toeaina at the first-quarter buzzer to give the Wahine a 16-12 lead.
Both teams struggled from the field in the second period, combining for 15 points, and the Wahine took a 22-21 lead into halftime after Harris scored on a putback just before the buzzer.
UH outscored the Titans 17-6 in the third quarter to open up a 39-27 lead. Cal State Fullerton closed to within eight with 5:47 left in the game, but Crawford drained a 3-pointer and UH led by at least nine the rest of the way.
UH closes the regular season on March 4 with its senior night game against Long Beach State at the Stan Sheriff Center.
