UTA 61 @ LOUISIANA MONROE 57
Call this one sweet revenge.
The Mavericks managed to get a modicum of payback Thursday night in beating the Warhawks at the Fant-Ewing Coliseum, equalizing the tough loss they took to Monroe in Arlington earlier this year.
UTA led by as many as 11 in the second half and had a 10-point lead with less than seven minutes to play.
Monroe did cut that lead down to one basket, as a steal from Marvin Williams and basket from Tylor Ongwae made it a two-point game with 38 seconds left. But two big free throws from Johnny Hill and a turnover off of Nick Coppola with 13 seconds left allowed the Mavs to seal the win.
The win allowed the Mavs to move to within a game of first place in what so far has been a very tight race in the Sun Belt Conference. The top five teams in the conference are all separated by just one game.
