UCCS finishes season sweep of Colorado College
COLORADO SPRINGS-Patrick Hannaway scored 31 points to lead the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs to a 94-69 victory and a season sweep of intra-city rival Colorado College Tuesday at Reid Gymnasium.
Hannaway made 14 of his 18 field goal attempts to raise his nation-leading shooting percentage to 69.3 percent.
Nic Fuller's jumper with 13:32 left in the first half gave UCCS a 13-12 lead and spurred a 12-2 run that put the Mountain Lions ahead for good. The lead grew to 46-34 at the intermission and never dipped below 10 the rest of the way.
Joe Scott added 13 points for UCCS (13-4), while Kyle Perkins and Bryan Snyder had 12 points each.
Bly McGuire had 10 points and a game-high 10 rebounds to help UCCS grab a 40-25 advantage on the boards.
Kyle Keefe led the Tigers (2-18) with 23 points while Jorge Salem added 18 points and nine rebounds.
The Mountain Lions were able to control the perimeter. Colorado College came into the game shooting 35.7 percent from 3-point range but was held to 21.7 percent by the UCCS defense.
With three Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference games on tap over the next seven days, the Mountain Lions were hoping to get their bench plenty of playing time. The UCCS bench saw 70 minutes of playing time.
