As Tech fans pinked out the Thomas Assembly Center for the Susan G. Komen foundation, the 19-5 Techsters clinched their 400th win at home after defeating the 9-17 Hawaii Rainbow Wahine 76-50.

The Techsters started the first half strong, leading by as much as 15 points. As the half drew near, the Rainbow Wahine closed the gap to five, with the Techsters leading 30-25 by the buzzer.

Techsters continued to dominate the second half with leads increasing as high as 30. Senior forward Adrienne Johnson led the Techsters by sinking 22 points and grabbing 22 rebounds, as she helped her team drown the Rainbow Wahine.

The Techsters remained on top all night, as they refused to let Hawaii take the lead.

They look to continue their winning streak, as they tip off against San Jose State Saturday at 6 p.m. in a double-header, starting with the Bulldogs facing Georgia State at 3 p.m. in the TAC.
