Fresno Pacific's men's and women's basketball teams each dropped to 0-2 on three-game swings through Hawaii, with losses late Thursday to Chaminade.
A sluggish second half led to a 94-84 defeat for the men. Madison Higgins delivered 23 points for the Sunbirds, but the Silverswords netted 51 second-half points to snap a four-game losing streak while handing Fresno Pacific (5-8, 1-5 PacWest Conference) a sixth straight defeat. Chaminade is 5-7 and 2-4.
The women rallied from 16 down to get within one before missing a 3-pointer at the horn in a 67-65 loss. Trailing 55-39 with just over 10 minutes to play, the Sunbirds (2-9, 2-4) went on a 25-11 spurt to make it a one-possession game. But playing without point guard Jenay Herring (ankle), the Sunbirds were hurt by 33 turnovers. Charde Stevens had 18 points and 13 rebounds.
The Silverswords (1-9, 1-5 PacWest) were led by Katie Buskey's 17 points.
Never miss a local story.
