Hopkins scored 40 for the Tritons, AJ Carlos added 17 points, and Cloyd Rosas scored 14 points.
UOG will play Guam Community College at 8:30 p.m. on March 20 in an elimination game. The loser is out of the tournament, and the winner will play again on March 21. UOG is 2-0 against GCC this year, but the games have been close, with UOG winning 94-93 and 81-72.
