Mountain Lions Suffer Blowout Loss at Metro State

By Doug Fitzgerald published January 15, 2011

DENVER - The Metro State Roadrunners outscored the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs 47-16 in the second half to finish off a 77-39 blowout Saturday evening at the Auraria Events Center

Reggie Evans led Metro State (13-2, 10-1 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) with 18 points, while Glenn Miller had 12 and Brandon Jefferson added 11. Miller grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds and A.J. Flournoy had six assists.

The Mountain Lions shot a season-low 25.5 percent, were outrebounded 47-35 and had a 16-9 deficit in the turnover column. The only Mountain Lions to shoot 50 percent were Paul (4-for-8), Brent Jones (2-for-4) and Rob Howe (1-for-2). The rest of the team combined to go 7-for-41.

The 38-point loss was the largest margin of defeat for a UCCS team since Feb. 3, 2006, when the Mountain Lions fell by the same amount, 114-76 to Fort Lewis. The 39 points scored were the fewest by a UCCS team since Nov. 20, 2004, an 88-33 loss to Division I Nevada which was also the last time the Mountain Lions suffered a larger margin of defeat than Saturday. It was the fewest points scored against a non-Division I team since Jan. 4, 1992, an 82-35 loss to Adams State.

Alan Paul Led UCCS (4-11, 2-9 RMAC) with 10 points and six rebounds Saturday.
