HONOLULU (AP) — Looking for a lift Sunday, Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold turned to his bench and a pair of freshmen.

Reserve guard Manroop Clair got the starting nod and scored 15 points to help Hawaii beat East Tennessee State, 84-61 in a consolation-round game of the Diamond Head Classic on Sunday. Freshman Brandon Jawato also started the game.

Vander Joaquim scored 23 points to lead Hawaii (6-4). Christian Stanhardinger had 18 points and 12 rebounds. Isaac Fotu had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Brandon Spearman added 10 points.

The 23-point win was the largest margin of victory in tournament history.

Clair and Jawato previously averaged less than 10 minutes per game. But both played well enough off the bench in Saturday's loss to Miami to earn their starting roles Sunday.

"If you've ever coached freshmen — and I've coached a bunch of them — there's always usually a game where all of a sudden it kind of clicks and they grow up a little bit and we're hoping this one is Manroop's," Hawaii coach Gib Arnold said. "He always has this to fall back on and we can refer back to the confidence that he played with, because I do think he needs to be a part of this rotation."

Clair, smiling, said that he was tired after the game.

"It's a good feeling," Clair said of being on the floor. "As long as we got the W. The win is what matters."

Clair ran the point and controlled the floor well for Hawaii. He finished with season highs in points and assists (five). Jawato had four steals and three assists.

"He hurt us," East Tennessee State coach Murry Bartow said of Clair. "He's a guy that can make shots. We lost him a couple times in our zone."

Hawaii led 34-22 at halftime and never trailed in the game. Hawaii scored the first 12 points of the second half to distance itself from East Tennessee State. Clair hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give Hawaii a 57-31 lead with 12:39 remaining.

Hawaii led by as much as 31 points late in the game and shot 51 percent from the field, converting 34 of 67 shots. East Tennessee State shot just 34 percent from the field, making 23 of 67 shots.

Rashawn Rembert and Jarvis Jones scored 14 points each, and Lester Wilson added 11 points for East Tennessee State (2-9).

Hawaii will play Ole Miss (9-2) in Tuesday's fifth-place game. East Tennessee State will play San Francisco (5-6) for seventh place.
