HONOLULU (AP)—Kali Bennett scored 15 points and had 15 rebounds to lead No. 17 Arizona State to a 65-53 victory over Hawaii on Friday night.
Danielle Orsillo added 15 points for Arizona State (3-1) in the opening game of the Rainbow Wahine Classic.
The Sun Devils controlled the boards, outrebounding Hawaii 46-33, and built a 32-22 halftime lead over the Rainbow Wahine (1-3).
Keisha Kanekoa scored 15 points to lead Hawaii, which lost its third straight after winning coach Dana Takahara-Dias’ debut.
The win helped the Sun Devils recover from a loss to Xavier last week that dropped them three spots in the rankings.
