Denver vs. Texas-Arlington final score: Pioneers hold off Mavericks, 50-35

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

Denver used a barrage of three-point shots to drop Texas-Arlington on Monday afternoon in a 15-point win.

Following a narrow loss to Louisiana Tech over the weekend, the Denver Pioneers picked up a much-needed 50-35 victory over the Texas-Arlington Mavericks on Monday at College Park Center in Arlington, Tex.

The Pioneers held the Mavericks to a season-low 35 points on 27.7% shooting as a team, in a game where Texas-Arlington players coughed the ball up a total of 15 times. Denver also struggled with its shot often during the game as well, but made up for it by nailing 11-of-35 three-point attempts overall. Nate Engesser, who came off the bench to make four of his eight three-point field goal attempts in just 12 minutes, finished with a game-high 14 points to take home player of the game honors.

Now with a 5-8 record on the season, the Pioneers will next square off against Texas State on Thursday back at home in Magness Arena. After starting the year with a frustrating 1-5 mark, Denver has been able to walk away with victories in four of its last six contests, and they currently sit at 1-1 overall in Western Athletic Conference play.
