ARLINGTON, Texas -- Kevin Butler scored 17 points to lead Texas-Arlington to a 68-63 victory against UTSA on Saturday night.
UTSA led 45-41 in the second half before Texas-Arlington scored 13 unanswered points, a run that culminated on Butler's three-point play that made it 54-45 with 8:33 remaining. The Roadrunners got within 56-54 on a 3-pointer by Hale III with 4:08 to play.
White-Miller answered with a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down to push the lead back to five. Gainey then blocked a UTSA 3-point attempt, which led to a fast-break layup by Butler that put Texas-Arlington up 61-54 with 2:12 left.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
