Buddy Hield had 27 points and nine rebounds as No. 3 Oklahoma remained unbeaten, escaping with an 84-81 victory over Hawaii in a Diamond Head Classic semifinal on Wednesday night.
The Sooners (10-0) got a career-high 17 points from Khadeem Lattin and 14 from Isaiah Cousins.
Hield was 7 of 16 from the field, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range, and he made all six of his free throw attempts. He had 18 points at halftime.
Roderick Bobbitt scored a career-high 32 points and had six assists for the Rainbow Warriors (8-2), who had their four-game winning streak snapped. It was their first loss on their home court this season.
Hawaii had a chance to tie it at the buzzer, but Bobbitt's desperation 3-pointer was no good.
Oklahoma, which led by as many as 16 points in the first half, was up 41-40 at halftime.
There were six ties and 12 lead changes in the game.
