SAN ANTONIO (AP) Milton Doyle scored 27 points including five 3-pointers and blocked three shots as Loyola clobbered Texas-San Antonio 71-57 on Tuesday night, breaking a 20-game road losing streak that dates back to January 2013.

The Ramblers (3-1) fell behind by six at halftime when the Roadrunners (2-2) closed on a 12-0 run.

Devon Turk and Christian Thomas drained 3-pointers to jump-start the Ramblers after intermission and back-to-back 3s by Turk gave Loyola the lead for good at 45-41. Loyola shot 54.5 percent in the second half (47 percent total) and finished 10-for-10 at the line.

Turk and Thomas each scored 11.

Jeromie Hill scored 19 to lead UTSA, his 12th consecutive game in double figures. The Roadrunners lead Conference USA in scoring at 78 points per game, but sank just 20 of 54 against Loyola, which collected seven steals and blocked five shots.

Kaj-Bjorn Sherman added 10 points for UTSA.
