Also scoring in double figures for the Bobcats (10-21, 5-13 WAC) were Matt
Staff and Deonte Jones with 15 and 12 points, respectively, as they snapped a
two-game slide with the victory in the regular-season finale.
The Spartans (9-19, 3-13), who had to have their game against Texas-San

from beyond the arc, compared to a woeful 1-of-13 for the hosts, as the
visitors cruised to the lopsided win.
