UTSA were fortunate on Tuesday to end their year on a high as they pulled away late on to beat Division II Cameron 64-56 at the Convocation Center.
Devon Agusi was impressive for the Roadrunners as he managed 28 points, for a season high thanks to a 7-of-13 night from the floor with 13 free throws along with four rebounds, three assists and three steals.
Jordan Sims also hit double figures, managing 13 points, nine of which came from three 3-pointers as he hit past ten for the ninth time this season.
The Roadrunners were impressive on the boards with 37, turning 17 offensive rebounds in to 16 points while also earning 31 points from the line in some promising signs going in to 2014.
Cameron got off to a perfect start jumping out to an early 7-2 lead only for UTSA to bounce back with a 14-2 run of their own.
That run started thanks to a 3-pointer from Sims before Agusi put UTSA in front for the first time with his 3-pointer, that was followed by his own three point play.
The Aggies weren't about to lay down and the theme of runs continued as an 11-2 run from Cameron resulted in a tied game at 18-18 with 5:31 left in the first half.
UTSA restored their lead thanks to three free throws only for a Charles Joy jumper to give Cameron the edge at the break with the score at 29-27.
With four minutes to play UTSA took the lead thanks to a Sims 3-pointer, putting them up 56-55, a free-throw levelled the scores but UTSA went on to score nine points uninterrupted to seal the win.
Vital in that closing run was UTSA's solid work from the line as they netted eight free-throws in the 11-1 run that sealed the win, just their fourth of the season.
