The Denver Pioneers certainly are providing a compelling contest for fans at Magness Arena and those watching across the nation on ESPN2 this Saturday afternoon. The Pioneers lead the Middle Tenn. St. Blue Raiders at halftime, 34-31.
The Pioneers saw Rob Lewis score the first eight points for the team, but it became a team effort after that. Chris Udofia has a game-high 11 points, and he has come up with two big blocks. Royce O'Neale has contributed seven points from off the bench.
As a team, the Pioneers are shooting 50 percent on 11-of-22 shots and have made all 11 free throws. The team could do a bit more rebounding, as they the Blue Raiders lead that, 12-7. But, the Pioneers have made five steals and taken advantage of 10 Middle Tennessee State turnovers.
