IRVINE, Calif. -- Chris McNealy came off the bench to score 15 points and hit three 3-pointers to lead UC Irvine to a 68-64 victory against Hawaii on Wednesday night.
Isaac Fotu's layup gave Hawaii a 57-56 lead with 4:53 remaining. But the Warriors went without a point for the next 3:39, as Starring scored six points to ignite UC Irvine's late charge.
Hawaii missed five straight shots, and Starring's two free throws gave the Anteaters a 67-58 cushion with 57 seconds to play.
McNealy had six rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
