(Irving, Colorado Springs) – The Texas Lutheran men’s basketball team snapped a two-game Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference losing skid this past weekend with a pair of conference road wins, rolling past the University of Dallas 68-52 on Friday and edging Colorado College 74-72 on Sunday.

Senior shooting guard Matt Perry came off the bench to hit five three-pointers and score 15 to spark TLU Friday evening at UD's Maher Center.

For Perry, the road game at Dallas marked the second straight year in which he had propelled the Bulldogs to a key road victory. Last year, Perry made six three-pointers (on six attempts) to score 18 points in 16 minutes of action.

Junior point guard Nathan Josephs added 18 points and six rebounds for the Bulldogs.

Jackson Willoughby and Alex Cage chipped in nine points and eight points, respectively. Cage pulled down a team-best nine rebounds, and Willoughby contributed six rebounds.

Josephs and Cage each had four assists. Cage also tallied three steals.

TLU led 27-26 at the break before out-scoring the Crusaders 41-26 in the second half.

TLU shot 52.4 percent from the field in the second half (47.7 percent for the game) and held Dallas to 39.6 percent for the game.

The Crusaders went 3-for-15 from the three-point line. TLU hit 11 of 22 three-point attempts and went 15-for-18 at the free throw line.

Freshman shooting guard Sebastian Andrade nailed a jump-shot with nine seconds remaining in Sunday’s game against Colorado College to lift TLU over the Tigers in Colorado Springs.

At CC's Reid Arena, Andrade's jumper gave TLU a one-point lead, 73-72. TLU's Shawn Hamilton stole a pass with four seconds to play to send the Bulldogs to the free throw line.

Nathan Josephs went 1-for-2 at the line. The second free throw missed but resulted only in a long half-court heave from the Tigers that missed the mark at the buzzer.

TLU won its second straight Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference game overall and its third consecutive conference road game this year.

The two wins improved the Bulldogs to 7-10 overall and to 3-3 in the SCAC.

Colorado College fell to 7-11 overall and to 2-5 in the SCAC.

Andrade finished the game with 20 points off the Bulldog bench. The freshman hit four of his five three-point attempts and went 7-for-10 overall from the field. He also added four rebounds.

Josephs, Alex Cage and Hamilton also made it into double figures. Josephs had 13 points and four assists. Cage recorded 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals, and Hamilton registered 12 points, four rebounds and a steal.

The Bulldogs led by as many as 18 in the first half. The TLU lead dropped to 43-36 at the break. The final five minutes had three lead changes.

TLU shot 50 percent (27-for-54) for the game and went 11-for-27 (40.7 percent) from the three-point line.

The Tigers also shot 50 percent from the field (25-for-50) but made only three three-pointers. Colorado College did go 19-for-24 at the free throw line.
