Scoring drought dooms Schreiner men against UT-Dallas, 77-68

Alex Dehoyos scores 24 points for the Mountaineers, but it's not enough to lift Schreiner to first win of the season.

A long second-half scoring drought doomed Schreiner University's men's basketball team Tuesday night against visiting University of Texas-Dallas, 77-68.

The Comets' perimeter shooting helped doom the Mountaineers. UT-Dallas shot 41.9% from 3-point range, 13-of-31, and that was just enough to hold off Schreiner's late-game surge.

Schreiner's Alex Dehoyos fought his way to 24 points on Tuesday night.

However, the biggest inhibitor for Schreiner's progress is prolonged shooting droughts. For three minutes, the Mountaineers went scoreless, while UT-Dallas built a lead as big as 12 points. Schreiner went scoreless on four consecutive possessions before an Alex Dehoyos jump shot snapped the streak.

UT-Dallas continued to pressure the Mountaineers and held leads as large as 17 points before Schreiner could chip away at the lead in the final 90 seconds of the game.

Dehoyos, Schreiner's senior guard, scored a season-high 24 points. Dehoyos also had five rebounds and five assists. Kamden Ross scored 12 points for the Mountaineers. Christian Caldwell came off the bench to score 10 points.

The Mountaineers trailed 37-34 at halftime, with Dehoyos leading the way with 16 points.

Schreiner is now 0-3 on the season and heads out a six-game road trip that includes an exhibition game on Nov. 29 against Division I Abilene Christian.
