Southern Utah vs. Denver final score: Pioneers have balanced attack in win over Thunderbirds

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

Denver had no issues in defeating Southern Utah on Friday night.

The Denver Pioneers improved to 4-2 at home and 4-6 overall after easily taking care of the Southern Utah Thunderbirds, 72-47, on Friday night. The first half is where Denver pulled away as they doubled up the T-Birds, 40-20, and that lead came after a 14-3 run late in the first half.

The Pioneers had one of their best offensive games of the year by shooting 55 percent from the field, including making 7 of 16 shots from beyond the arc. There was not one particular player who had a big game for Denver as they had five players score in double figures with Cam Griffin and Royce O'Neale leading the way with 12 points each.

The defense also came up big by holding Southern Utah to just 40 percent from the field. Since Southern Utah was trailing big, they had to try to comeback with their three-point shooting, and Denver was able to hold Southern Utah to just 4 of 12 from beyond the arc.

This win was Denver's third straight at home.
