Unruh, Central Arkansas rout Univ. of the Ozarks 93-52
CONWAY, Ark. (AP) — Thatch Unruh scored 18 points and Hayden Koval scored 15, 13 rebounds and three blocks to help Central Arkansas beat Division III-member University of the Ozarks 93-52 on Monday.
Central Arkansas built a 35-3 lead and was never threatened. UCA, which shot 63 percent from the field and 46 percent from 3-point range, led by as many as 34 points in the first half, en route to a 47-19 halftime advantage. The margin reached 42 points in the second half as the Bears improved on their first-half shooting by hitting 65.5 percent in the last 20 minutes.
The Eagles made three consecutive 3-pointers in a 60-second span to get to within 53-32 with 15:40 remaining, but that was as close as they would get. UCA outscored Ozarks 40-20 the rest of the way, finishing with 22 assists and eight blocks — both season highs.
Tim Turpin scored nine points for the Eagles.
