    HONOLULU (AP) -- Marcelus Kemp scored a season-high 29 points to lead Hawaii to a 77-59 win over Nevada in Honolulu Saturday night.

    Brandon Fields added 14 points for the Wolf Pack (9-6, 1-1 Western Athletic Conference) and Armon Johnson had 11.

    Matt Gibson led Hawaii (5-10, 1-2 WAC) with 22 points, the only Rainbow Warrior in double-figures scoring.

    Trailing by as much as 12 points in the first half, Nevada fought back late in the first with a 17-2 run to go up 27-24 on Fields' 3-pointer with 1:29 to go in the half. The Wolf Pack led 31-28 at the break.

    Nevada opened the second half on an 11-3 run to take a 42-31 lead with 15:01 remaining. Hawaii responded with a 7-0 spurt of its own to pull to within four, 42-38, with 13:15 to go.

    But the Wolf Pack answered right back with its own 7-0 spurt and the Rainbows would get no closer the rest of the way.

    Hawaii, which averages nearly 20 free throw attempts per game, did not take a single foul shot in the first half. The Rainbows finished the game 8-of-14 from the line.
