HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The UC-Irvine women's basketball team had a lead for about two minutes at the start of the game, but that was short-lived as the Rainbow Wahine dominated the Anteaters, 85-59, Saturday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.

With the victory, Hawaii improves to 10-7 and 4-1 in the Big West. The win is UH's fourth straight in the conference.

Five different players scored in double figures including Shawna Kuehu (18), Destiny King (12), Kamilah Jackson (12), Ashleigh Karaitiana (12), and Pua Kailiawa (11).

The Rainbow Wahine now face the toughest part of their schedule, as they head off on a four-game, 11-day roadtrip, starting with Long Beach State on Thursday, Jan. 30 and Cal State Northridge on Feb. 1.
