PLAYERS: Julien Lewis
TEAMS: Texas Longhorns
De'Andre Haskins scored 32 points to lead Division II Chaminade to an 86-73 upset of Texas on Monday night, 30 years after the tiny school made its mark on college hoops with its famous upset over top-ranked Virginia. The win was just Chaminade's seventh at the Maui Invitational since the tournament started in 1984. The host team has lost 76 at the tournament in that span. Haskins also had nine rebounds as the Silverswords (2-2) turned a tight game in the first half into a blowout. Kevin Hu, a Taiwanese freshman, scored 16 points in 14 minutes off the bench. Texas (2-1) shot 46.4 percent for the game after making just one of eight 3-pointers in the first half. The Longhorns finished with 18 turnovers compared with just 10 assists, and made less than 57 percent of its free throws. Chaminade led at halftime after battling back from two separate deficits of seven or more points each. The Silverswords fell behind 8-0 after missing their first 10 shots. Chaminade picked Texas apart in the second half, not allowing the Longhorns to score consecutive baskets until less than 7 minutes remained in the game. A pull-up jumper from Hu with 6:23 left gave Chaminade a 19-point lead at 64-45. Texas pulled to within nine on a 3-pointer from Julien Lewis with 2:16 left, but could get no closer. In the closing minutes, Texas had flashes of superior play, generating turnovers with pressure and stopping basic possessions, but the effort meant little by then. When Chaminade upset Virginia, it was an 800-student NAIA school and didn't even have its own gym. Today, the Catholic school a few miles from the beaches of Waikiki has 1,200 students. --- Oskar Garcia can be reached on Twitter at http://twitter.com/oskargarcia .
