HONOLULU -- Chris Eversley scored 25 points and Cal Poly withstood a late comeback attempt by Hawaii for a 64-61 victory on Saturday night.
Reese Morgan added 10 points for the Mustangs (15-12, 10-6 Big West), who denied Hawaii two potential game-tying 3-pointers in the final seconds.
Isaac Fotu had 17 points, Vander Joaquim 15 points and 10 rebounds and Hauns Brereton 13 points for the Rainbow Warriors (17-12, 10-7), who trailed by 13 points with just under five minutes remaining.
Two 3-pointers by Jace Tavita and another by Brandon Jawato helped Hawaii get within 64-61. The Warriors had two possessions to tie, but Brereton's 3-pointer with 12 seconds to play rimmed out, and -- after Cal Poly twice missed the first attempt of a one-and-one -- Jawato dribbled in search of an open shot but did not get a 3-point attempt off before the buzzer sounded.
The Mustangs led 27-25 at halftime and shot 66.7 percent (16 for 24) from the floor in the second half.
Eversley made 11 of his 18 shots for the game.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
