Former Hilo High standout Vicky Tagalicod played 16 minutes for Hawaii and didn’t score while ex-Kamehameha/Waiakea star Kanisha Bello played just two minutes and drained a 3-pointer.

Neither team shot well from the field, but the Titans held a big advantage at the free-throw line, making 17 of 23 while Hawaii was 4-of-7. The Rainbow Wahine also turned the ball over 22 times compared to Cal State-Fullerton’s 13.

SOFTBALL

Hawaii 1, Utah 0: Alyssa Villalpando’s one-out single down the third-base line plated Sharla Kliebenstein with the winning run in the bottom of the eighth for the Rainbow Wahine (19-5) in Honolulu.

With the international tiebreaker in place, Kliebenstein began the inning at second base and advanced to third on Jazmine Zamora’s sacrifice bunt. Kliebenstein then scored when Villalpando hit a grounder that went off the third baseman’s glove and trickled into foul territory.

Kaia Parnaby (17-2) pitched a one-hit shutout, walking one and striking out eight.

Kayce Nieto (2-2) suffered the loss for Utah (13-8-1). She scattered three hits and walked none while striking out five.
