Hawaii vs Long Beach State

Hawaii came within two points of both its 5th straight road win and its 20th win of the season falling to LBSU 61-63

I can't believe we gave up that three. That's what I was thinking to myself the entire time that I watched that last sequence. Don't let him get open. Don't let him get the shot. FOUL! NOOOOO. And then...devastation. So close to both 20 wins and a record-setting 5th straight road victory. Christian Standhardinger had a much better night, and Standhardinger became the 16th player—and just the fourth two-year player—to score 1,000 career points at UH when he hit a layup with 4:17 left. He also set a new single-season record for free throw attempts (228), breaking a 44-year old record held by John Penebacker. None of that matters, however, where UH REALLY needed this win, both for seeding purposes as well as for its own confidence headed into the post season (there would still have been a chance for an NIT berth, I think, had we won.) Anyway, time to bounce back over the next two games! Go Bows!
