HONOLULU (AP) -- Christian Standhardinger scored 20 points, Hauns Brereton added 16 and Hawaii erased a second-half deficit to defeat UC Irvine 78-72 on Saturday night.

Vander Joaquim had 15 points for the Rainbow Warriors (15-9, 9-4 Big West), who won their fifth straight game.

Alex Young scored 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Anteaters (12-13, 6-6). Daman Starring had 18 points.

Hawaii trailed 34-31 at the break and fell behind by seven points in the second half. But a 14-0 run over a 6:23 stretch gave the Warriors the lead for good.

Vander had seven points during the surge, and Standhardinger's back-to-back jumpers made the score 49-42 with 11:29 left.

The Anteaters got within four points down the stretch, but Hawaii protected the lead by going 11 of 12 from the free-throw line in the final 1:28.
