Forward Kevin Hervey led the Mavericks (13-8, 4-4) in scoring with a total of 21 points and eight rebounds, including a three-point buzzer-beater at the half.
Forward Davion “Sticks” Turner finished the night with 10 points, three rebounds. Turner, who Hervey considers a little brother, is regarded as one of the most efficient players by Coach Scott Cross.
“He has a lot of potential and he’s extremely confident,” said Hervey. “I kind of see a lot of myself in him. I think he’s a tremendous player for us.”
The Mavericks put on a much more consistent performance after Thursday’s rocky loss to Louisiana. They were seemingly more focused and locked in, which may have been a factor in relieving pressure to redeem themselves.
UTAs defensive play was dominant throughout the game holding ULM to 31% in shooting and seven offensive rebounds.
“I felt like we had some toughness and grit,” said Coach Cross. “I’m very pleased with the way things went and hopefully this is a game we can build off of.”
ULM (7-11, 1-6) leads the Sun Belt in three-point percentage (.382) and UTA managed to hold them to 35%. Tonight’s loss marks the eight straight road loss (0-8) for the Warhawks.
Next up the Mavericks will travel to face Georgia State next Thursday night.
