LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) _ Namon Wright scored 21 points, Montaque Gill-Caesar added 18 and Missouri beat Chaminade 74-60 Wednesday in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational.

Missouri (3-3) had two disappointing losses to open the tournament, but jumped on Chaminade (2-3) early, building a 10-point halftime lead behind Wright.

The Silverswords made a run in the second half, but Gill-Caesar stuffed any hope of a comeback by scoring 16 points and hitting four 3-pointers in the second half.

Lee Bailey led Chaminade with 22 points and Kuany Kuany added 14.

Using their depth to overwhelm the smaller Silverswords, the Tigers scored the game’ first nine points and built a 38-28 halftime lead.
