HONOLULU—The University of Hawai`i women's basketball team (7-11, 2-1 WAC) held off a scrappy New Mexico State team, 51-48. Sophomore Kamilah Jackson led UH with her 10th double-double of the season to lift the 'Bows to its first 2-1 WAC record since the 2002-03 season.
Jackson had a team-high 16 points going 4-of-10 from the floor and 8-of-10 from the free-throw line. She also grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds with two assists, two steals, and a blocked shot. It marked her 23 double-double in her career. Sophomore transfer Vicky Tagalicod added nine points with four rebounds and freshman Kalei Adolpho came off the bench to contribute seven points, five rebounds and one blocked shot.
The Rainbow Wahine hit the road next week to face Nevada on Jan. 26 and Fresno State on Jan. 28.
