The University of Hawaii women's basketball team was upset by Cal State Fullerton 66-51 on Wednesday in the second round of the Big West Conference tournament in Irvine, Calif.

Mya Olivier scored 17 points and three teammates also reached double figures for the eighth-seeded Titans (11-21).

Cal State Fullerton went on an 18-4 run to take a 50-38 lead with 8 minutes, 1 second remaining. The advantage reached 63-45 with 1:28 left.

"Definitely would have wanted the outcome to be different for Hawaii, but (I'm) very proud of the girls," first-year Hawaii coach Laura Beeman said on the UH athletics website. She added she is hopeful the Rainbow Wahine will be invited to the WNIT.

Kamilah Martin had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the third-seeded Rainbow Wahine (17-13). Monica DeAngelis and Ashleigh Karaitiana each added nine for Hawaii, which received a first-round bye.

"I think they definitely came out harder than we did, they just outplayed us," Martin said.

The UH men's basketball team will open Big West tournament play today in Anaheim, Calif.
