It is the longest win streak during newly named Big West Coach of the Year Laura Beeman’s three-year tenure. The 14-game win streak ties the 1989-90 team’s longest win streak in program history. It is also the longest since UH won 19-straight games under then head coach Vince Goo in 1997-98. Hawai’i clinched their first conference title with a 47-46 win at Long Beach State on Feb. 26. It is their first conference title since the ‘Bows won the Western Athletic Pacific Division crown in 1997-98 under Goo. It also marks UH’s third Big West title after Goo led the ‘Bows to back-to-back first place finishes in 1992-93 and 1993-94. Hawai’i is looking for its second conference tournament title, UH won the Big West tourney in 1995-96.” – Hawaii Athletics
