Rainbow Warriors fall to Aggies
DAVIS, Calif. (AP) — Brynton Lemar scored 19 points, 12 from 3-point range, and Lawrence White and Chima Moneke each scored 14 as UC Davis upended the University of Hawaii men’s basketball team 68-59 on Thursday.
The Rainbow Warriors shot just one free throw in the game — a miss by Gibson Johnson.
Lemar’s 3-pointer with 7:30 left gave UC Davis (19-11, 11-4 Big West) the lead for good at 49-47. On Hawaii’s next possession, Lemar came up with a steal and promptly buried another 3 as the Aggies took control.
Jack Purchase led UH with 15 points shooting 5-for-11 exclusively behind the 3-point arc. Noah Allen scored 13 points and Johnson added 12.
The Rainbow Warriors close the regular season Saturday at Long Beach State.
