EDINBURG, Texas(AP) — Demarco Stepter scored 17 points and UTSA
used a 23-2 start to cruise past Texas-Pan American 72-48 on
Friday night.

UTSA notched its first 8-2 start since 1989.

The Roadrunners, who got 12 points and four assists from Devin
Gibson, led by 21 with 11:59 left in the first half and 37-18 at
intermission.

Stepter, who made eight of his 10 shots, opened the second half
with a jumper to push it to 39-18, and Texas-Pan American never
got within 20 after that. Melvin Johnson III’s 3-pointer with
2:43 left gave the Roadrunners their largest lead at 71-38.

Aaron Urbanus and ChaRunn Jones led the Broncs (1-11) with eight
points apiece. Matt Mierzycki pulled down a game-high nine
rebounds.
