    Appleby was 10 of 15 from the field. Cordarius Johnson added 14 points, including four 3-pointers, and J.L. Lewis chipped in 10 points for Louisiana Tech.

    The Bulldogs (9-10, 1/3 Western Athletic) snapped a four-game losing streak and picked up their first conference victory, while the Rainbow Warriors (10-8, 2-2) dropped their second straight.

    Joston Thomas paced Hawaii with 22 points.

    Hawaii shot 51 percent from the field but committed 17 turnovers, which the Bulldogs turned into 22 points.
