The University of Hawaii at Hilo tried to win on the edge again but fell off in an 83-82 loss to Hawaii Pacific University in a Pacific West Conference game in the UHH gymnasium.

The Vulcans are 10-5 overall and 4-1 in the PacWest while the Sea Warriors are 9-4 overall and 5-0 in the PacWest.

Justin Smith pulled in the Sea Warriors missed free throw with 11 seconds on the clock. Taking the handoff from Smith, Bryan Ngo drove the length of the court in hopes of reliving his last second shot which two nights before gave the Vulcans an 87-86 win over Brigham Young University-Hawaii.

Ngo shots missed the mark but the ball wound up in the hands of Kevin Bruce. Bruce’s shot from 10 feet bounced off the rim. Smith last attempt to tip the ball in rolled off the rim as time ran out.

“It’s hard living like that with three good looks at the end and we couldn’t finish it off,” UHH head coach Jeff Law said. “I was so depressed the way we started … mentally and physically. We made a few adjustments mentally at the end of the first half and did a lot better.”

Ngo scored 15 of his team-high 24 points in the second half as he repeatedly beat the defense for acrobatic lay-ups.

Smith added 18 points and 10 rebounds. Lavell Shipman had 12 points and Zachary Wilde had 10.
