ETSU loses again in Hawaii

HONOLULU — Looking for a lift, Hawaii coach Gib Arnold turned to his bench to start the game.
Reserve guard Manroop Clair got the starting nod and scored 15 points to help Hawaii beat East Tennessee State, 84-61 in a consolation-round game of the Diamond Head Classic on Sunday.
Vander Joaquin scored 23 points and Christian Stanhardinger had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead Hawaii (6-4). Isaac Fotu had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Brandon Spearman added 10 points. The 23-point win was the largest margin of victory in tournament history.
Rashawn Rembert and Jarvis Jones scored 14 points each, and Lester Wilson added 11 points for East Tennessee State (2-9).
Clair and Brandon Jawato, both freshmen guards, previously averaged less than 10 minutes per game. But both played well enough off the bench in Saturday's loss to Miami to earn their starting roles Sunday.
Clair ran the point and controlled the floor well for Hawaii. He finished with season highs in points and assists (five).
Hawaii, which never trailed in the game, scored the first 12 points of the second half to distance itself from East Tennessee State. Clair hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give Hawaii a 57-31 lead with 12:39 remaining.
The Rainbow Warriors led by as much as 31 points late in the game and shot 51 percent from the field, converting 34 of 67 shots. East Tennessee State shot just 34 percent from the field, making 23 of 67 shots.
Hawaii will play Ole Miss (9-2) in Tuesday's fifth-place game. East Tennessee State will play San Francisco (5-6) for seventh place.
Hawaii ran out to a 16-6 lead to start the game and led by as much as 14 in the first half. The Rainbow Warriors scored the last six points of the first half to lead 34-22 at halftime.
