Warriors roll past Southern Miss, 60-46


Jack Purchase scored a game-high 17 points and Gibson Johnson added 10 points this morning to help Hawai’i roll past Southern Mississippi, 60-46, for seventh place in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.

A sparse Christmas Day crowd of about 1,800 and national TV audience on ESPNU watched the Warriors snap a four-game losing streak to improve to 5-7. Southern Miss fell to 3-8.

Leland Green’s 3-point basket from the left corner with 9:06 remaining in the first half broke a 17-17 tie and the Warriors eventually led, 32-22, at halftime.

The Golden Eagles could not get closer than nine points in the second half.

More details, including video highlights and interviews, will be posted later.

    Shooting 36.5% for the game. Well, all considered, its an improvement. 32.7% for Southern Miss, so there’s that.
    A Christmas morning workout. Hope they have plans for the rest of the day.
    Merry Christmas to the Southern Miss team and fans! Merry Christmas to the Bows and fans!
