|Warhawks lose Sun Belt tilt|
Denver executed its offense to perfection in the second half to overcome a first period deficit and pull out a win over the visiting ULM men's basketball team, 58-47, inside Magness Arena in Denver, Colo., on Sunday.
Denver (7-9, 2-3 Sun Belt) finished the second half connecting on 66.7 percent of its shots after converting on only 36 percent in the opening period.
It would be a four-minute cold spell by the Warhawks in the second stanza that gave the Pioneers all the room they would need for a 16-2 run. Freshman forward Andrew Hooper scored 12 of his team-high 14 points in the second half, including a pair of treys during the run to help push the advantage to double figures.
Hooper finished the game by converting on 6-of-7 shots, including each of his five second-half attempts.
For the Warhawks, sophomore Rudy Turner controlled the paint and scored a game-high 16 points to go with a game-high eight rebounds. The Alexandria native was 8-of-12 from the floor, but found himself triple-teamed in the second half.
Trailing by four with 11:39 remaining in the opening period, Turner took over. He scored 10 of the Warhawks' next 13 points to help the team regain the lead at 24-21 with 2:06 left in the opening stanza.
ULM (5-11, 1-4 Sun Belt), on the strength of Turner's 10 points and six boards, took a 24-23 lead into the intermission.
The Warhawks went on a 6-2 run to open the second half and push their advantage to 31-25. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Travis Hallam keyed an 8-0 run to give the Pioneers the lead back at 37-33.
DU would go on another run and extend its lead to as many as 10 points on the strength of a pair of treys by the 6-9 Hooper.
The two squads traded buckets down the stretch, but offensive possessions were limited and DU was able to hold on to the double-digit lead.
Junior Malcolm Thomas provided the running mate for Turner's inside game as he finished with 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting. Junior Kenneth Averette added six points and a team-best five assists to only one turnover.
For Denver, Nate Rohnert tied with Hooper for the team lead with 14 points. Rohnert also dished out eight assists in 36 minutes of play. Brian Stafford rounded out the Pioneers' double-digit scorers, adding 13 points on the strength of a 3-for-8 performance from 3-point.
The Warhawks will be back in action looking to snap a modest two-game skid today, Jan. 15, when they travel to Jonesboro, Ark., for a 7 p.m. game against Arkansas State.
