<p>For fans of University of Hawaii athletics, this has been a winter of discontent.   A last-gasp victory last night over LaTech ended a streak of 18 combined losses by UH teams.</p>

<p>Following an encouraging start, the men’s basketball team had lost five in a row and nine straight on the road.  But a 54-53 win thankfully ended those droughts. The Bows will then play at New Mexico State on Saturday.</p>

<p>Things have gone worse for the Rainbow Wahine basketball team.  Much worse.  Following a pair of turnover-filled performances in home losses to Fresno State and Utah State, Hawaii’s record plunged to a dismal 3-16 overall and 0-6 in the WAC.    The women are on a seven-game skid as they go on the road for games against Utah Sate on Friday and Idaho on Sunday.</p>

<p>Even the men’s volleyball team, generally one of the stronger programs at the school, is suffering through an awful year.  The Bows are 1-6 overall, 0-4 in the MPSF and have lost six straight going into home matches on Friday and Saturday against second-ranked Cal State Northridge.</p>
