University of Hawaii senior guard Sarah Toeaina became the 21st player to reach the 1,000-career point milestone in program history on Thursday, but it was not enough for the Lady ‘Bows to beat CSUN at the Stan Sheriff Center.
The Rainbow Wahine fell to 8-12 overall, 1-6 in the Big West Conference with a 70-58 loss, a third consecutive defeat for the ‘Bows.
Toeaina, who needed 10-points entering the game, reached the milestone in the fourth quarter and would finish with 18-points and 7-rebounds.
The Matadors were led behind reigning BWC player of the year, center Channon Fluker who posted a dominant 34-points and 17-rebounds.
The Rainbow Wahine will return to action on Saturday against UC-Riverside at 5pm at the SSC. Their game will be followed by the conference leading Rainbow Warriors (13-5, 4-1 BWC) hosting Cal State Fullerton at 8pm.
