Tony Binetti scored 11 of his game-high 19 points in the second half to lead Seattle Pacific to a 69-54 victory over Hawaii Pacific in a non-conference game Saturday night at Brougham Pavilion.


The Falcons (5-0), ranked No. 11 in NCAA Division II, remained perfect on the season. The Sea Warriors (0-4) are still in search of their first victory.


The Falcons, who led by four at halftime, scored seven straight points early in the second half to turn a three-point advantage into their first double-digit lead of the contest.


The Sea Warriors climbed back to within seven with 14:35 left to play, but Binetti buried his only three-pointer of the game to put the Falcons back on top by 10. SPU kept its lead in double figures for the next 10 minutes, but Hawaii Pacific pulled back to within eight, 55-47, with 3:20 remaining.


Dustin Bremerman was the only other Falcon in double figures with 15 points.
