The University of Hawaii men’s basketball team broke a four-game skid in a big way on Saturday, walloping 76-53 Cal State Fullerton in the second game of a road back-to-back.

The Rainbow Warriors (4-4, 2-4) were balanced offensively throughout the game, as four players scored in double figures. Junior Madut was the team’s leading scorer with 14 points, while James Jean-Marie added 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting. Justin Webster and Casdon Jardine both had 12 points each.

The Titans (4-5, 3-5) were out-rebounded 48-21. Tray Maddox Jr., the leading scorer on Friday, was the only CSUF player in double figures with 12 points.
