HONOLULU (AP) — Eddie Stansberry hit five 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 19 points and Zigmars Raimo scored 17 on 8-of-10 shooting to lead Hawaii to an 85-68 win over Northern Arizona on Sunday night.
Jack Purchase added 11 points, Brocke Stepteau scored 10 and Drew Buggs had nine points and a season-high eight assists for Hawaii (3-1).
Stansberry scored 11 points, including three 3s, during an 18-3 run over the final six minutes of the first half that gave the Rainbow Warriors a 41-25 lead at the break. Raimo made back-to-back layups to open the second half but the Lumberjacks (2-2) scored 19 of the next 27 points before layup by Carlos Hines trimmed their deficit to 59-50 with nearly eight minutes to go. Buggs converted a 3-point play about 90 seconds later that extended the lead to 16 and NAU trailed by double figures the rest of the way.
