Hawaii at Pacific men (halftime)

The Warriors lead Pacific 36-33 at halftime of a well-played and entertaining contest.

Hawaii has shot 51.9 percent from the field and are dominating inside with Christian Standhardinger geting 14 points on 6 of 9 shooting and Vander Joaquim getting 10 on 4 of 8 shooting.

Pacific made 12 of 25 first half attempts as Travis Fulton continued his hot week by making 6 of 10 shots for 14 points, while Sama Taku has 7 despite being 1 of 5 from the field.

The teams have played to their strengths so far, with the Warriors pounding the ball inside and the Tigers running their offense to get good looks for their shooters. The Tigers will have to change up their defense and force the other Warriors to score in the first to have a chance. Maybe a zone defense?

It’ll improved defense and improved shooting from Taku and Lorenzo McCloud for the Tigers to get this critical win.
