It was a different site but the same result for the Hawaii women’s basketball team.
The Rainbow Wahine rallied from nine points down in the fourth quarter at San Diego State to take a lead on Leah Salanoa’s free throws with 1:27 left, but SDSU’s Tea Adams drove for the go-ahead basket with 7.1 seconds left and UH was off the mark on its final possession in a 58-57 afternoon loss today at Viejas Arena.
UH called a timeout to set up a play and advance the ball and guard Courtney Middap drove from the top of the key all the way to the rim, but her layup bounced off and out of bounds with 0.6 seconds left. SDSU inbounded and the game ended before the Wahine could take a foul.
UH, which dropped to 0-2 for the second time in three years, lost 65-64 at home to Pepperdine on Tuesday when the Waves hit a go-ahead shot with 9.8 seconds left and the Wahine could not answer coming out of a timeout.
Kenna Woodfolk led UH at SDSU with 16 points, Salanoa scored all of her 15 points in the second half, and Julissa Tago scored 12 of her 13 points in the first half for UH, which trailed 32-25 at halftime and 49-40 going into the fourth quarter.
The Wahine conclude their road trip at San Diego on Sunday.
