UH men’s basketball holds off CSUN for road win

The Hawaii men’s basketball team made several key free throws down the stretch to hold on for an 84-79 road victory over Cal State Northridge tonight in the Matadome.

The Rainbow Warriors’ last field goal came with 4:16 to play, giving them a 73-63 lead.

But the Matadors made several frenetic runs, closing to 80-79 on Terrell Gomez’s 3-point shot with 13 seconds to play.

UH’s Samuta Avea was fouled with five seconds to go. His 11th and 12th points gave the ’Bows a three-point cushion.

UH forward Jack Purchase then stole the ball and was fouled. His ensuing free throws with six-tenths of a second sealed the outcome.

The ’Bows, who improved to 11-5 overall and 2-0 in the Big West, were led by Eddie Stansberry’s career-high 25 points. Diane had 28 points and 16 rebounds for CSUN (8-11 and 2-1).
