Sunday: five game reports

Well, well, well. Mighty mo is riding the Pioneer wagon train after Denver took down Louisiana Tech 78-54 in the Mile High City on Saturday. A 45-25 opening half did the trick. All five of Coach Joe Scott's starting quintet went for double figures with Chris Udofia tops at 18 points while swatting away five shot attempts. Denver shot 52% overall to LT's 35% and no Bulldog reached double figures. Plus, this is what is so typical of the Pioneers: sophomore guard Cam Griffin, averaging six points and 3.2 boards a game, goes for nine points and a team-leading eight boards.

As for the top seed in the WAC tournament, it will be either the Denver or LA TECH squad with the top NCAA RPI.

Texas Arlington entered the Las Cruces city limits with the unenviable task of taking down New Mexico State and fell behind 38-23 at intermission. However, the Mavericks came back to make it a game before falling three points short at 69-66. Bandja Sy's 19 points paced NMSU and Sim Bhullar was on top of the boards with 12. It was Sy's trey with three seconds remaining that won it. Wing Kevin Butler was the leading scorer for Coach Scott Cross with 14 points.

Utah State matched up with Texas San Antonio in Logan and what was a relatively close duel became a 71-51 Aggie triumph when the final horn sounded. Forward Ben Clifford busted out for 21 points plus eight boards while Spencer Butterfield and TeNale Roland each finished with 14 and USU owned the boards at 42-26 and shot 50%. Michael Hale III paced the Roadrunners with 21 points but TSA connected on just 33% of its shots.

A pair of Northwesters (or close to it) went at it last night with Seattle ahead of host Idaho 32-25 after 20 minutes. But the Vandals came back to take a 76-72 win on the basis of a 51 point second half. Kyle Barone led with 27 points plus 12 boards and fellow senior Mike McChristian was just behind at 26 points (7-11 from long distance). Connor Hill totaled 18 points on six treys. For the Redhawks, Chad Rasmussen topped his team with 16 points. It was hot team shooting all the way around as Seattle finished at 53% and the Vandals 48%.

With the roof leak virus quarantined and removed, host San Jose State University paired off with Texas State. The visitors turned a 52-40 lead at halftime into a 90-67 victory based on 65% overall shooting, plus 11-17 accuracy from long distance. Forward Joel Wright posted a 21/10 double-double for the Bobcats while Chris Cunningham paced SJSU with both his 17 points and seven boards.
