The Colorado Mesa men's basketball team started off the new year with a 80-71 win over the South Dakota Mines Hardrockers.
It was a back-and-forth game, but the Mavericks lead for the majority. CMU senior center Damon Dubots had his best game of the season as he racked up 28 points on 12-17 shooting in 37 minutes of play. All those numbers are season highs.
The Mavericks improve to (9-3) overall on the season and are now (4-2) in RMAC play. The action resumes Saturday night for CMU as it will host Black Hills State at 7:00 p.m.
