LAHAINA, Hawaii—De’Andre Haskins scored 32 points to lead Division II Chaminade to an 86-73 upset of Texas on Monday night, 30 years after the tiny school made its mark on college hoops with its famous upset over top-ranked Virginia.

The win was just Chaminade’s seventh at the Maui Invitational since the tournament started in 1984.

Haskins also had nine rebounds as the Silverswords (2-2) turned a tight game in the first half into a blowout. Kevin Hu, a Taiwanese freshman, scored 16 off the bench.

Texas (2-1) shot 46.4 percent for the game after making just one of eight 3-pointers in the first half.

Chaminade led at halftime after battling back from two separate deficits of seven or more points each. The Silverswords fell behind 8-0 after missing their first 10 shots.

After the final buzzer, the Silverswords raced onto the court and celebrated.
