Tarleton 77, Dixie St. 59


ST. GEORGE, Utah – Konstantin Dotsenko scored a game-high 23 points to lead Tarleton to its largest win over a Division I opponent, 77-59, on the road against Dixie State.

The Texans (7-8, 2-5) have now won a season-high four straight games and it’s also the second straight WAC win, both of which have come on the road. The other road win was against Utah Valley, 70-62, on Jan. 30.

Shamir Bogues did it all for the Texans on both ends of the court finishing with 11 points and four steals, his sixth game with at least three steals on the season. Bogues, a true freshman, now leads the WAC in steals with 2.0 per game.

Utah Valley 69, New Mexico St. 66


EL PASO, Texas – Trey Woodbury knocked down a late go-ahead three and Utah Valley held on down the stretch to defeat WAC-rival New Mexico State, 69-66, on Saturday night at Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas .

Woodbury scored nine of his 15 points in the final five minutes of the game to help the Wolverines move to 8-8 on the season and 6-2 in WAC play. The Aggies fall to 5-6 on the year and 2-5 in conference play.

Grand Canyon 71, California Baptist 61


It had been 20 days since Grand Canyon last played a game when it took the GCU Arena floor Friday night with California Baptist, but the Lopes did not forget how to play.

They have forgotten how to lose with 60 days since their last loss.

GCU won its ninth consecutive game, tying it for the sixth-longest winning streak in the nation, and kept command of the WAC race by stifling CBU’s potent perimeter game for a 71-61 victory.
