Rainbow Warrior hoopsters fall to LBSU in front of home crowd

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warriors basketball team suffered a tough break in its return to home Thursday night as Long Beach State defeated Hawaii, 92-83, at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Despite five UH players scoring in double figures, the 49ers shot 60-percent from the field and two guards combined for 53 points.

The Bows are back in action Saturday night against Cal State-Northridge in the second matchup of a four-game homestand.
