Seniors shine in loss
Seniors Jack Bain, Casey Gutting and Jimmie Pack combined for 42 points in the final game of their collegiate careers, a 102-63 defeat at the hands of the Mesa State Mavericks.
Bain had 20 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Bain entered the game leading the nation in rebounding (NCAA Division II) at 12.4 per game. Gutting added 12 points and Pack 10.
Jared Perry led Mesa State (17-8, 13-5 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) with 21 points on 10-for-10 shooting. The Mavericks shot an unreal 67.8 percent from the field for the game.
Gutting scored CU-Colorado Springs' first five points as the Mountain Lions led 5-4. A Russ Mendelsohn jumper, however, started a 28-5 Mesa State run from which CU-Colorado Springs (5-22, 4-15) never recovered.
