HONOLULU, Calif. --- California Baptist University finished off its Hawaiian road trip with another dominating victory, defeating Chaminade 80-46 Saturday night.

The win was the eighth straight for the Lancers and fourth straight on the road for CBU.\

"We had a really balanced effort tonight," said CBU Head Coach Jarrod Olson. "It's great to be leaving Hawaii with four wins. This is a tough place to play and we're playing well at the right time."

The Lancers still sit a game behind No. 15 Grand Canyon in the PacWest standings with three left to play.

Chaminade opened with the first two points of the game Saturday, but after that CBU kicked off one of its now trademark fast starts, going up 19-4 over the next seven minutes.

The Lancers led by double-digits the rest of the way, going up by as much as 22 points in the first half.

CBU closed the game on a 19-4 run to seal the 34-point win.

It was the ninth time this season and the fifth time in the past six games that the Lancers have eclipsed the 80-point mark.

"Simone Holmes really got us going in the second half and Mekiala Qualls had another solid effort off the bench tonight," said Olson. "This was another good team effort now we're looking forward to coming home and getting ready for the home stretch."

Holmes led all players with 15 points on the night and Qualls posted her second double-double with 10 points and a game high 12 rebounds.

The Lancers shot a season high 52.6 percent from the 3-point line in the game, hitting 10 of 19 threes. CBU also held Chaminade to a 26.8 percent shooting clip from the floor defensively.

The Lancers have outscored opponents by an average of 25.5 points per game during their eight game win streak.

CBU comes home to face Point Loma on Thursday before facing Azusa Pacific and Fresno Pacific on the road to finish the regular season.

The win moves the Lancers to 18-5 overall, 12-3 PacWest and drops the Silverswords to 1-19, 1-14.
