Hawaii 78, UNLV 72

HONOLULU (AP) -- After failing to score a point last month in Las
Vegas, senior forward Julian Sensley scored a career-high 28 points
to lead Hawaii over UNLV 78-72 Tuesday night.

Sensley, who was held scoreless in the Rainbow Warrior's Nov. 22
loss at UNLV, shot 10-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-4 from
3-point range.

Hawaii took a 59-46 lead on a pair of Sensley free throws with
9:07 remaining in the game, but UNLV cut the deficit to 72-66 on a
3-pointer by Jason Petrimoulx with 1:30 left.

Hawaii made key free throws down the stretch to hold off the
Rebels.

Turnovers plagued both teams.

UNLV turned the ball over 21 times and Hawaii 20, but the
Rainbow Warriors made up for it by shooting 51 percent to the
Rebels' 43.1 percent.

Ahmet Gueye added 13 points and eight rebounds, and Matt Lojeski
added 15 points for the Rainbow Warriors (3-1).

Petrimoulx and Louis Amundson had 17 points apiece for the
Runnin' Rebels (2-4). Michael Umeh added 16 points and Jo'Van Adams
had 10. Amundson pulled down 12 rebounds.
