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.
We're not talking All-America teams or the 10 best players. We are talking the best "team" from the first five on the floor to the subs off the bench. Plus, they need to be coached. So just imagine this: John Calipari and Rick Pitino on the same staff.
Southern Utah guard Randy Onwuasor, who led the Big Sky in scoring last season with 23.6 points per game, has received his release to transfer, sources told ESPN.
