Sunday: four game reports

It was Denver hosting Idaho and a 36-14 point differential in the initial 20 minutes powered Coach Joe Scott's guys to a 74-58 victory. How did the Vandals go from 14 points to 44 points in the second half? Coach Don Verlin will accept COD answers. UI got 'hearted' as Pioneer freshman Jalen Love shot 9-10 overall (4-5 on treys) on his way to 22 points, a career high. UD achieved 21 assists on 29 field goals plus 14 steals and six blocked shots. Both Mike McChristian and Stephen Madison scored 14 points to lead the Vandals, who pilfered the ball seven times but didn't register a blocked shot. Kyle Barone played just 19 minutes, scoring eight points and grabbing five boards.

Louisiana Tech welcomed Texas State and won both 20-minute sessions and thus the game 84-69. Tech's Raheem Appleby owned the neighborhood with 21 points and Alex Hamilton finished with 15. Joel Wright didn't shoot all that well from either the floor or foul line but still topped the Bobcats with 13 points. LT won the boards battle 43-30 and there was also a big difference in free throw accuracy -- 18-20 for the hosts, 13-25 for TS.

New Mexico State mixed it up with visiting Seattle and led 34-30 at halftime. It became even closer but with the hosts eventually pulling the game out 60-57. There really are no moral victories but, if such did exist, chalk this one up for the Redhawks. Daniel Mullings paced NMSU with 18 points and big Sim Bhullar just missed a double-double with 14 points, nine boards and four blocks. Deshaun Sunderhaus led Coach Cameron Dollar's bunch with 14 points while fellow frontcourter Chad Rasmussen finished with 12. Seattle outshot the Aggies 39% to 34% and also outboarded them 42-30 but was 8-13 at the charity stripe versus 24-36 for the Las Cruces crew. Two frontcourters fouled out for the Redhawks and a third was tagged with four fouls.

It was a close one all the way between Texas Arlington and visiting Texas San Antonio, being 37-35 Roadrunners at the half. However, that became reversed with the Mavericks ahead 68-63 at the final horn. Kevin Butler scored 17 points with Jordan Reves leading in rebounding with 13 for UTA, which shot 47%. Kannon Burrage paced UTSA with 22 points, followed by 18 from Michael Hale III. 36 of the 54 shots by Coach Brooks Thompson's crew were from long distance. A favorable note for the Alamo-ites: forward Jeromie Hill is back from injury: he compiled eight points, six rebounds, four assists and a trio of steals in 28 minutes.
