Clark then scored the final three points of the game for SFA, including two free throws with 52.7 seconds remaining to give the Jacks a lead. Two free throws by Leonard Brown and a dunk by Paez sealed the win for SFA. Larry Posey led UTA with 16 points before fouling out with 3:24 to play. Thomas was held to a season-low six points, 12 below his season average. UTA was limited to 30 (15 of 31) field goal attempts in the game and made 24-of-36 free throws. UTA attempted just 13 field-goal attempts in the first half, but managed to go into the locker room down two points, 28-26, after SFA s Leonard Brown raced the length of the floor for a layup at the buzzer following a Stephen Floyd missed free throw. The UTA freshman five of Jermaine Griffin, Baron Sauls, Myles Guidry, Larry Posey and Rodrick Epps accounted for 19 of the Mavs 26 first-half points. YOUNG GUNS Prior to the start of the season, recruiting services proclaimed the UTA Class of 2004 as one of the best in school history. Maybe they were right. The UTA version of the Fab Five group of freshmen Larry Posey, Baron Sauls, Rodrick Epps, Jermaine Griffin and Myles Guidry have combined to average 23.3 points, 11.3 rebounds per game. The freshman combined for 36 points in the win at Louisiana-Monroe. Against the Indians, Posey led UTA in scoring and rebounding with 15 points and eight boards. Posey became the first true freshman during Eddie McCarter s tenure to score double figures in his college debut with 10 points at TCU. One night later, Griffin recorded his first double-double with 21 points and 14 rebounds in a win over UT-Permian Basin. Epps started nine games this season and is the team s top three-point field goal shooter with 40.The school s freshman record for three-pointers in a season is 65 set by Willie Brand in TEXAS HALL Make fun on the theatre seating, but there is no denying that Texas Hall has become one of the toughest places to win a basketball game in the Southland Conference. UTA is 19-5 over the last 24 games played at Texas Hall. This season, UTA is 8-4 at home with the only losses coming to New Mexico (64-55), Northwestern State (69-58), Texas-San Antonio (79-72) and Lamar (85-66). UTA is all-time at Texas Hall. 500 CLUB UTA continues to draw close to the milestone 500 all-time victories in the program s history. UTA is all-time since becoming a four-year institution in PRODUCTIVITY It would be no surprise to anyone who has watched UTA played that the most productive player on the squad is junior forward Steven Thomas (photo right). Thomas is averaging 22.8 points and 10.6 rebounds every 40 minutes played. The second most productive, based on the 40 minute average, is freshman guard Baron Sauls at 16.1 points per 40 minutes played. INJURIES None (SEE PAGE 22)
