    East stars have the right moves in Hula Bowl
    (Honolulu (AP)) - Marshall's Bernard Morris threw for 172 yards and a touchdown in the first half to lead the Aina (East) to a 38-7 victory over the Kai (West) on Saturday in the 62nd Hula Bowl.

    New Hampshire's Ricky Santos was 10 of 16 for 169 passing yards, and Tulsa's Paul Smith added 47 yards passing and ran for two short touchdowns for the Aina, which piled up 519 yards of total offense.

    Aina's defense also was impressive, setting the tone in the lopsided all-star event for players who were college seniors in the 2007 season. Aina held Kai to 240 yards, including 35 yards rushing, and forced six turnovers that led to 28 points.

    The Aina took control early, forcing three turnovers and recording three sacks in the first half, two by Cincinnati's Angelo Craig. Fellow Bearcat Haruki Nakamura intercepted a pass by Washington State's Alex Brink that led to Morris' 3-yard TD pass to Bruce Hocker that made it 21-0 shortly before halftime.

    Brink finished 3 of 8 for 52 yards. Stanford's T.C. Ostrander was 1 of 7 for 6 yards.

    San Diego State's Kevin O'Connell was one of the few bright spots for the Kai. He was 11 of 21 for 147 passing yards. California's Robert Jordan had four receptions for 84 yards.

    Toledo's Jalen Parmele and Navy's Reggie Campbell each had 1-yard touchdown runs in the fourth quarter for Aina. Parmele was the game's leading rusher, with 46 yards.
