Sunday: five game reports

Denver had New Mexico State coming in for the top WAC attraction of the day and the result was a six-point victory, 66-60, for Coach Joe Scott and his guys. Four Pioneers reached double figures: Royce O'Neale with 14 points, 13 for Chris Udofia and Brett Olsen and 11 from Chase Hallam. Bandja Sy led the Aggies with 21 points and Sim Bhullar finished with 17. The biggest statistical differential, 18-8 in turnovers with NMSU owning the double figure.

Louisiana Tech hosted San Jose State University and came away with an 88-61 win. Raheem Appleby led the Bulldogs with 16 on an off-shooting night plus Alex Hamilton and Jaron Johnson each scored 13. Kenneth Smith racked up nine assists with nary a turnover in 23 minutes of court time. Guard Xavier Jones, also with an off-shooting game, paced the Spartans with 14 points. The two jump out stats: SJSU shooting 32% and having 21 turnovers.

All these down Lone Star State way:

As expected due to personnel losses and the Texas Arlington defense, UTA downed Utah State 61-46 as Coach Stew Morrill's crew scored just 22 and 24 points respectively in each half. Kevin Butler went for 21 points (5-10 from long distance) and Karol Gruszecki totaled 14 for the Mavericks. For the Aggies, Marcel Davis finished with 15 points while TeNale Roland contributed 12. Jared Shaw ended with 11 points plus eight boards. Neither squad shot well overall but Texas Arlington finished 11-24 on three-point attempts.

Mysterious Idaho continued mystifying as Coach Don Verlin's bunch put 90 on Texas State which managed 81. Kyle Barone was a force yesterday with 26 points, 14 rebounds and a trio of blocked shots. Guard Connor Hill totaled 22, bolstered by 5-7 accuracy from long distance plus Stephen Madison wasn't far behind with 20 points. Big man Matt Staff led the Bobcats with 20 points with Deonte' Jones and Joel Wright scoring 12 apiece. The Vandals won the boards 36-24.

In just a strange contest all the way around, Seattle took down Texas San Antonio 53-37. No that wasn't the halftime score as the Redhawks enjoyed a 29-11 initial 20 minutes lead. Forward Chad Rasmussen's 19 points (5-9 from three-point range) was out front for Coach Cameron Dollar's outfit. The Roadrunners shot 23% overall with Jeromie Hill and Kannon Burrage each scoring 15 on 5-13 and 5-16 shooting respectively. Michael Hale went 1-11 and concluded with three points.
