Raimo, Stepteau help lead Rainbow Warriors to season-opening victory

HONOLULU (AP) — Zigmars Raimo tied his career high with 17 points and Brocke Stepteau scored 16, including four 3-pointers, to help the University of Hawaii men’s basketball team beat Portland 82-64 on Friday night in the Outrigger Resorts Rainbow Classic at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Jack Purchase added 15 points and five assists and Eddie Stansberry scored 12 for the Rainbow Warriors, who were playing their season opener.

Raimo made a layup as time expired in the first half and UH opened the second with a 17-3 spurt — including two 3-pointers by Purchase — that made it 53-37 with 13:32 left. Portland (1-1) trailed by double figures the rest of the way.

Marcus Shaver Jr. led the Pilots with 19 points, Tahirou Diabate scored 12 and Josh McSwiggan 11.

Hawaii had 22 assists on 31 field goals, hit 11 3-pointers and used its 13-3 advantage on the offensive glass to outscore Portland 15-3 in second-chance points.

The Pilots trailed 36-34 at the break but made just 4 of 15 from the field, including 1 of 7 from 3-point range, in the second half.

The Rainbow Warriors play Humboldt State today and North Texas on Sunday to wrap up the tournament.
