Gorillas Drop Regular Season Finale to Mavs, 85-69

Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Pittsburg State men's basketball team lost its final regular season game, 85-69, at Nebraska-Omaha Saturday afternoon (Feb. 26) at Sapp Fieldhouse.

Andra Bailey led four Gorillas in double figures with 15 points. JaVon McGee and Drake Green each added 14, while Eric Ray scored 10. Bailey led Pitt State with 11 rebounds for a double-double.

Though the Gorillas trailed the whole game, they played strong early in the second half to cut the UNO lead to five points at 46-41 with 18:27 to go.  The Mavs were not able to stretch the lead back to double digits until the 14 minute mark. From that point on, UNO stayed at lead 10 points infront of the Gorillas, eventually earning the 16-point win.

Pitt State trailed 46-34 at the half. The two teams were tied at 19-19 with 11:45 remaining in the half when Adrian Herrera drained a three for the Gorillas. UNO went on a 12-0 run at that point to take a 31-19 lead and held it through the end of the half.

UNO had four players in double figures, led by Tyler Bullock with 18. Torian Harris and Jeff Martin each added 16, while Mitch Albers had 13.

Pitt State must now await the results of the Missouri Western-Southwest Baptist game tonight to determine if the Gorillas qualify for the 2011 MIAA Postseason Tournament. Pitt State needs a MWSU victory to clinch a tournament berth.
