SAN ANTONIO -- Kenyon McNeail scored 34 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer with 19 seconds left, as Louisiana Tech beat UTSA 73-71 Saturday night to complete a three-game road sweep through Texas.
The Bulldogs (14-3, 5-0 Western Athletic), who have won six straight, beat Texas-Arlington and Texas State on the road last week before dispatching UTSA.
Louisiana Tech trailed 71-68 after Sims hit a 3-pointer with 1:26 remaining. Two free throws from McNeail made it a one-point game and Michale Kyser then blocked Burrage's shot on the other end to set up McNeail's game-winner.
Thomas' 3-point attempt at the buzzer for UTSA was off the mark.
Leaving early for the NBA is a risky decision. Some players -- Skal Labissiere, Dejounte Murray -- slid in the draft. Some -- Isaiah Taylor, Troy Williams -- weren't drafted at all.
College basketball coaches across the country will hit the recruiting trail hard in July to target the Class of 2017's top prospects. Which players are the nation's top programs targeting?
The Tar Heels could lose Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks after next season. Coach Roy Williams has nearly every top-10 2017 prospect on his board.
