SALT LAKE CITY -- Tomas Brock scored 16 points to lead five Southwest Baptist players in double-figures as the Division II Bearcats beat Utah 80-79 in the season opener for both teams Saturday.
The Bearcats made 16 three-pointers and led most of the game, while the Utes missed 11 free throws.
The Utes trailed by one after Brock missed a shot with 10 seconds remaining. With no timeouts remaining, Utah's Lawrence Borha missed a wild runner with about three seconds left.
It was believed to be the Bearcats' first victory over a Division I team.
Utah?s Luke Nevill scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and made two free throws with 11.1 seconds left to pull the Utes to within one. But he also missed six foul shots.
Travis Reid matched his career-high with 29 points in helping Stanford win its third in four games, beating San Francisco 71-59 on Sunday.
Anthony Bonner scored 17 points, Prentiss Nixon added 15 points and Colorado State beat Texas State 66-58 on Sunday.
Sure, Tennessee didn't win, despite having a chance. But what the Volunteers did prove was that they are ready to make some serious noise.
