Hawks Fly to Victory in Hawaii

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- Darrin Govens hit a career-high seven 3-pointers and had 23 points to lead Saint Joseph's to an 80-54 victory over Indiana on Tuesday in the consolation round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

Govens made his first six shots from behind the arc and finished 7-of-9 for the Hawks (2-2), who took command with a 19-0 run that gave them a 53-33 lead with 13:19 to play.

Malik Story had nine points to lead the Hoosiers (2-2), who committed 23 turnovers, many of the unforced variety, which led to 34 points for Saint Joseph's.

Ahmad Nivins had 18 points and eight rebounds for the Hawks, falling two rebounds shy of his fourth straight double-double this season.

Govens, a junior whose previous best was six 3s last season against Syracuse, hit a 3 to start the big run during which the Hoosiers committed seven turnovers and got off only two shots.
