Honolulu, HI (Sports Network) - Christian Standhardinger registered a double- double of 20 points and 13 boards as the Hawaii Warriors coasted to a 94-73 victory over the Long Beach State 49ers in a Big West Conference tilt at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Brandon Spearman added 16 points, Brandon Jawato scored 12, and Isaac Fotu grabbed 10 rebounds off the bench to help the Warriors earn their fourth victory in a row.
