SAN ANTONIO -- Jordan Reeves scored 21 points on a perfect 8 for 8 from the field, grabbed eight rebounds and Texas-Arlington shot 57.8 percent from the floor in a 75-67 victory over UTSA on Thursday night.
Texas-Arlington (7-6, 2-2 WAC) made 26 of 45 from the field including eight 3-pointers and dished out 19 assists as a team.
The Mavericks put distance between themselves and UTSA from the beginning, going on a 19-4 run to start the first half capped off by Jamel Outler's four-point play. Outler was fouled by Hyjii Thomas while hitting a 3-pointer, then made the free throw and Texas-Arlington never looked back.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
