UCCS' four-game win streak ends at Kearney
It took a miserable 28.8 percent shooting night to do it but the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' four-game win streak came to an end Saturday with an 85-54 loss to the Nebraska-Kearney Lopers at Kearney, Neb.
Bryan Snyder came off the bench to lead the Mountain Lions (12-4, 6-3 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) with 12 points. The sophomore from Simla, Colo., was also an illustration of UCCSâ€TM offensive struggles by being the only Mountain Lion to shoot better than 50 percent (4-for-6).
Dusty Jura led Nebraska-Kearney (13-3, 8-1 RMAC) with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
Behind five points from Drake Beranek, the Lopers opened the game with a 10-0 lead. UCCS closed the gap to 12-9 after a Joe Scott 3-pointer with 13:13 left in the half only to see UNK hold a 32-14 advantage the rest of the period.
UCCS never got closer than 20 afterwards.
Mountain Lions'TM forward Patrick Hannaway scored 11 points, his lowest total of the season. The senior made just 5-of-16 from the field, only the second time this season he's been held under 50 percent from the field.
