The Denver Pioneers continued its impressive undefeated start and earned its most eye-popping win to date by defeating the St. Mary's Gaels, 70-58, Wednesday night at Magness Arena. Senior forward Rob Lewis led the way for the Pioneers, finishing with 17 points on 4-of-8 shooting and three rebounds. Teammate Chris Udofia added 13 points, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in the win.
The win comes at a good time for Denver, as the Pioneers' schedule isn't about to get any easier. A trip to No. 18 Cal is up next on Saturday, followed by a trip to Utah State. If the Pioneers can score another upset win in the non-conference schedule, it would go along way to improving their NCAA Tournament resume out of the Sun Belt.
