Garrett Nevels had 16, Christian Standhardinger 15 and Brandon Spearman added 14 for the Rainbow Warriors (9-3). Spearman also grabbed 10 rebounds and Keith Shamburger chipped in with nine points, 10 assists and six rebounds.

Hawaii, which led by as many as 19 points in the second half, shot 58.3 percent (7 of 12) on 3-pointers but just 55.2 percent (16 of 29) from the free throw line.

Roberto Nelson scored 22, Devon Collier added 13, 10 rebounds and Challe Barton made three of his team's six 3-pointers to finish with 13 points for the Beavers (7-4).

Hawaii has now won seven of its last eight games.

A 12-0 second-half run by Hawaii began with Fotu's layup with 12:25 on the clock and concluded with his easy basket off an inbounds pass to make it 65-46 with 8:05 remaining.

Oregon State answered by scoring 16 of the next 20 points, but couldn't cut the Hawaii lead to less than six points the rest of the way.

The Rainbow Warriors played at a frantic pace in the first half, racing up and down the court after an early 5-0 deficit. They took the lead on a 3-pointer by Spearman, but the Beavers tied it at 26 on Roberto Nelson's turnaround jumper at the 6:42 mark in the first half.

Hawaii responded with a 14-4 run that was capped by a Standhardinger bucket to give them a 40-30 lead.

The Beavers (7-4) shot 44.1 percent (26 of 59) from the field and made 15 of 16 from the free throw line. Oregon State committed 17 turnovers - which led to 22 Hawaii points - to just 12 assists. Hawaii had 18 assists against nine turnovers.

Nevels scored 10 points in the first half and Standhardinger netted all of his points before halftime.

It was the first time the teams have played since 2006 when Hawaii won 85-41 in Honolulu. The Beavers lead the all-time series 21-8.
