Men's basketball extends loss streak to five

By Doug Fitzgerald published February 10, 2007

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.
