The Rainbow Warriors forced 22 turnovers to pick up a 70-59 win over visiting Cal State Fullerton on Thursday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Hawai'i improved to 16-11 overall and 7-6 in the Big West.

The 22 turnovers were the most by a UH opponent this year. UH also held the Titans (10-18, 5-8 BWC) to just 35% shooting in the second half to get the win.

The 'Bows swept the season series and won five straight games against the Titans. With the win, the 'Bows moved into a three-way tie for third in the Big West standings with UC Davis and CSUN.

Drew Buggs led the 'Bows in the win with 20 points. Eddie Stansberry added 15, while Justin Webster finished with 10.

In the first half, Cal State Fullerton shot 61%, but the 'Bows took a 38-36 lead into the half. Buggs and Stansberry combined for 20 points in the first half alone and the defense forced 14 turnovers.

The 'Bows scored the first eight points in the second half to take a double-digit lead. CSUF could not recover as the 'Bows led by as many as 16 points.

UH snagged eight steals and were efficient from the free throw line, where the 'Bows hit 22-of-27 attempts.

The 'Bows will play their final home game of the season on Saturday as they take on UC Riverside for senior night. Stansberry and Zigmars Raimo will be honored following the game as part of their annual senior night festivities.
