Ostrowski, Joaquim lead Hawaii to 69-67 OT victory

HONOLULU (AP) - Jeremiah Ostrowski hit a tie-breaking jumper with 21 seconds remaining in overtime and Vander Joaquim finished with a career-high 24 points as Hawaii beat Nevada 69-67 Monday night.

Ostrowski, who had all four of his points in OT, scored on a 15-footer with the shot clock ticking down, and the Warriors (14-10, 5-7 Western Athletic Conference) then held on to split the season series with the Wolf Pack.

Nevada's Olek Czyz missed a shot with 8 seconds remaining, and the Wolf Pack (10-15, 7-5) also came up short on a heave at the buzzer.

Joaquim finished 10 of 14 from the field and had nine rebounds. His previous career-high of 22 came against Nevada in an 86-69 loss on Dec. 31.

Deonte Burton led the Wolf Pack with 21 points, and Jerry Evans Jr., added 15 points.
