    Louisiana Tech 51, Hawaii 48

    HONOLULU (AP) -- Paul Millsap had 20 points and 23 rebounds to lead Louisiana Tech to a 51-48 win over Hawaii on Saturday in the final regular season game for both teams.

    Hawaii (17-10, 10-6 Western Athletic Conference) led 38-29 with 17:52 remaining in the game.

    But then Louisiana Tech (19-11, 11-5 Western Athletic Conference) went on an 18-4 run over the next 17 minutes.

    The Rainbow Warriors did not make a field goal until Chris Botez's putback with 43.7 seconds remaining.

    Julian Sensley led Hawaii with 16 points and 10 rebounds. The Rainbow Warriors played without the help of team-leading rebounder Ahmet Gueye, who tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in practice Friday.

    Hawaii shot 28.8 percent from the field for the game, including just 3-for-23 in the second half.

    The Bulldogs, who lead the WAC in rebounding margin, outrebounded the Rainbow Warriors 47-37.

    Tied at 19 with 6:03 remaining in the first half, Hawaii went on a 17-6 run to close the period and take a 36-25 lead into the break.
