Feb. 4, 2004
NACOGDOCHES, Texas -- Antonio Burks led the Lumberjacks (14-4, 5-2) with 15 points as SFA rallied from a 10-point first half deficit to beat UT-San Antonio (9-12, 4-4) 69-60 Wednesday night in the coliseum. The win was the 26th straight for SFA at home.
UT-San Antonio was on fire early as the Roadrunners connected on their first eight three-point attempts in the game. The hot shooting enabled the 'Runners to build an early lead and stretch that lead to as many as 10 points with 5:48 left in the first half of play. The 'Jacks then trimmed the lead back to four points at 34-30 with 1:26 to play and had a chance to cut the lead further but misfired in the closing moments of the first half.
The Roadrunners ended the first half shooting .480 (12-25) from the field and .727 (8-11) from beyond the three point arc. The 'Jacks managed only .345 (10-29) for the first half from the field, but the tides turned over the final 20 minutes of play.
SFA connected on 11 of 25 (.440) and was also 4-9 (.444) from outside in the second half while UTSA shot .333 (6-18) from the field. The Roadrunners were only 2-7 (.286) from beyond the arc after the torrid start. The 'Jacks outscored the Roadrunners 39-24 in the second half.
LeRoy Hurd and Raphael Posey led UT-San Antonio with 15 points each.
