UCCS men drop fourth straight
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs committed 28 turnovers en route to an 83-67 defeat at the hands of the No. 4-ranked Metro State Roadrunners Friday evening at the Auraria Events Center in Denver.
Patrick Hannaway scored 20 points for the Mountain Lions (14-8, 7-7 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference), while Joe Scott added 13. Bly McGuire and Nic Fuller, who came into the game averaging 15.3 and 14.2 points per game respectively, managed just four and zero respectively. It was the lowest output of the season for each player.
Marquise Carrington led Metro State (20-2, 13-1 RMAC) with 27 points.
Behind a pair of 3-pointers by Carrington, the Roadrunners opened the game 13-0. The lead had grown to 31-8 when Hannaway scored nine and Scott six to lead UCCS on a 15-2 run to cut the deficit to 10.
The Roadrunners answered with a 10-0 run of their own before ending the half with a 48-30 lead.
UCCS opened the second half with a 13-4 run thanks to nine points by Hannaway but the momentum petered out.
The Mountain Lions will try to end their four-game losing streak when they face Colorado Christian Saturday at Lakewood.
