Denver Vs. Texas Southern Score Update: Pioneers Improve To 6-1 With Victory Over Texas Southern

One of the most surprising teams of the early part of the college basketball season kept it rolling, as the Denver Pioneers used a stifling defensive performance to earn a 62-46 home victory over Texas Southern.

The Pioneers, who have already knocked off Southern Mississippi, St. Mary's and Utah St. this season, controlled this game from the opening tip. Brian Stafford continued his excellent start to the season, scoring a team-high 22 points on 8/12 shooting from the field. Stafford hit five shots from behind the arc and also dished out four assists.

Sophomore forward Chris Udofia put his versatility on display, scoring 10 points, blocking five shots and dishing out five assists in the victory. Rob Lewis was the only other player to score in double figures, as he netted 13 points on 6/8 shooting.

Texas Southern struggled mightily on the offensive end, hitting only 43.5% of its shots. The Tigers didn't have anyone score in double-figures, as Omar Strong led the way with nine points in 17 minutes of action.

The Pioneers will face a stiff test on Dec. 7 when they host the Iona Gaels. Texas Southern continues its 10-game road trip with a visit to Northwestern on December 15.
