Torero Comeback Falls Short At UTA

Dec. 4, 2004

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. The Mavericks extended their lead to as many as 25 (53-28) before the Toreros closed to with 22 at intermission (54-32). In the 2nd half Vounang heated up for the Toreros as he scored 15 of his 18. 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. Gay fouled out with about 5 minutes left in the contest. USD had just 8 turnovers, but were outrebounded 39-26. USD shot 42% from the field, 35% from 3-point range and 77% from the free throw line (20-26).

UTA shot 60% from the field, 40% from 3-point land and 81% from the charity stripe on an unbelievable 47 chances. UTA also got double digit scoring from Jarrett Howell (20 points) and Stephen Floyd (18).
