(Honolulu-AP) -- The University of Hawaii men's basketball team is off to its best start in 30 seasons. The Rainbow Warriors upped their overall record to 19-and-3 tonight with a 75-to-60 victory over Texas-El Paso.
With the win, UH continues to hold a one-game lead in the Western Athletic Conference standings. Senior Predrag Savovic scored 19 of his career-high 32 points during a 24-13 second-half run that gave Hawaii the victory.
Until Savovic went on his personal spree, Hawaii couldn't pull away from the pesky Miners.
