KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Pittsburg State University men's basketball team used a 10-1 run over a four-minute stretch of the second half to break open a four-point game and eventually pull away for an 88-69 victory over Newman University in the MIAA Challenge at Municipal Auditorium Tuesday (Nov. 21).

The Gorillas (4-1) held a tenuous 57-53 lead on the Jets (2-2) with 12:58 to play in the game, before stretching the margin to 67-64 with 8:12 to go.

Pitt State converted 26 of 40 free throw attempts in the contest as Newman was whistled for 28 personal fouls. The Jets also generated 20 points at the charity stripe -- on 20 of 26 shooting -- as the two squads combined for 55 fouls.

The Gorillas shot 47.3 percent from the field in the game and Pitt State knocked down 10 3-pointers in the contest. The Gorillas forced the Jets into 21 turnovers.
