Texas State barely escaped FAU despite the Owls not being able to hit the side of a barn. Meanwhile, Hawaii is coming off a close loss and should feel confident it can bounce back at home where it's tough to play. If the Warriors can make their shots from the outside, the home team should have little trouble getting the job done here.
