The 14th-ranked UAA women’s basketball team survived foul trouble Wednesday night in Hawaii, escaping with a 71-60 nonconference win over Hawaii-Hilo.

Four players scored in double figures for UAA, including newcomer Cameron Fernandez. The transfer from Washington State became eligible this week and has been productive in two straight games. On Tuesday, the 6-foot guard supplied nine points in a 75-58 win over Holy Names University.

The Seawolves (9-1 overall) lost two players to fouls — Hannah Wandersee and Tennae Voliva — and had two others with four fouls.

Hilo (4-4) sank 22 of 29 free throws and got a 22-point, 10-rebound effort from Allie Navorette, but UAA fended off a fourth-quarter comeback by the Vulcans.
