Men's basketball extends loss streak to five
Despite 28 points by Nic Fuller, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs saw its losing streak grow to five with an 81-69 loss to the Colorado Christian Cougars Saturday night at Lakewood.
Fuller did everything he could to compensate for the absence of leading scorer Patrick Hannaway, who missed the game with a sprained ankle. Fuller made 9-of-17 from the field including 4-of-8 from 3-point range.
Freshman Kyle Perkins added a career-high 15 points for the Mountain Lions (14-9, 7-8 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference). Senior center Bly McGuire was held scoreless a night after registering just four points in a loss at Metro State.
Brian Stamer led Colorado Christian (11-12, 6-9 RMAC) with 26 points and eight rebounds. In two games against UCCS this season, Stamer combined for 57 points.
A Patrick Simpson jumper gave UCCS a 32-31 lead with 3:10 remaining in the first half. Aided by a pair of turnovers and four Mountain Lion misses, the Cougars answered with an 11-0 run to end the half with a 42-32 lead.
UCCS never recovered, trailing by as many as 24 in the second half.
