Fresno St. beats Hawaii at Wooden Legacy
FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Deshon Taylor scored 20 points to lead Fresno State to a 79-64 victory over Hawaii to finish third in the Wooden Legacy.
The Bulldogs made 11 of 20 from 3-point range (55 percent), with Sam Bittner and Braxton Huggins making three 3s each.
Fresno State was impressive all tournament, having won two of three games. Its only blemish was a heartbreaking loss to Miami in the semifinals on a last-second put-back dunk.
The Bulldogs (3-2) return to Fresno having played well in three consecutive games. Fresno State went on a 12-0 run in the second half to extend its lead to 59-43 and take control.
Jack Purchase scored 14 points and Zigmars Raimo added 13 for Hawaii (4-3), which beat Utah on Thursday and lost Friday to Seton Hall.
Hawaii cut the lead to five points at 45-40 on layup by Raimo early in the second half but that's as close as Hawaii would get.
