UTSA pulls away from Florida Atlantic 74-59
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Kaj-Bjorn Sherman scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 15 boards as UTSA took advantage of a Florida Atlantic scoring drought in the second half, beating the Owls 74-59 on Saturday night.
Sherman got 12 of his points at the free-throw line, and accounted for half of UTSA'S 30 points before the break. Jeromie Hill scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double.
FAU (8-13, 1-9 Conference USA) went ahead 44-43 on Justin Massey's three-point play with 13:20 remaining, but a scoring drought over a 7:03 span allowed UTSA to take an 11-point lead. The Owls were unable to recover, and the Roadrunners (12-10, 6-5) shot a perfect 5-for-5 at the line to end it.
