Final Stats

(Arlington, TX) - The USD Toreros (2-4), down by 25 points in the 1st half, battled back to within two at 85-83 late in the game before falling 92-83 to the Texas-Arlington Mavericks. Brice Vounang led six Toreros in double digits with 18 points, but UTA canned 38-of-47 free throws with Steven Thomas (26 points) leading the Mavericks to a 4-2 record. San Diego continues its 4-game road swing with a game at San Jose State this coming Tuesday when they'll try to snap their 3-game losing skid.

It was all UTA in the first half as they jumped out of the gates to a 10-0 lead, then held a 36-16 advantage at the 10 minute mark.

USD's full court press in the 2nd half was the key as the Toreros made their comeback bid. After pulling to within two at 85-83 in the final 3 minutes of play, USD struggled again at the free throw line as Avi Fogel and Brice Vounang both missed on two opportunities each.

Vounang was followed in double digit scoring by Brandon Gay (14), Avi Fogel (12), and three Toreros with 10 points - Corey Belser, Brett Melton and Ross DeRogatis.
