Texas-Pan American beats Texas-San Antonio 63-62
SAN ANTONIO (AP) Shaquille Boga hit a 3-pointer with 40 seconds left to lift Texas-Pan American over Texas-San Antonio 63-62 on Monday night.
UTSA’s Kaj-Bjorn Sherman made three free throws with 32 seconds left, but the Roadrunners would not get any closer.
Janari Joesaar led Texas-Pan American (2-0) with 17 points, 18 rebounds and six blocks. Boga finished with 16, Shaquille Hines had 15 and Dan Kimasa added 10.
UTSA (1-1) was paced by Ryan Bowie with 18 points, Jeromie Hill had 16 to go with 10 rebounds and Keon Lewis scored 10, on 3-of-17 shooting. The Roadrunners made just 30.7 percent of their 75 attempts.
The game was knotted at 27 at halftime and the lead changed hands eight times in the second half.
Boga was suspended for UTPA’s season-opening 88-80 win over Wayland for violating ”department and team policy.”
