ARLINGTON -- It got ugly quickly inside College Park Center for UT Arlington in a 93-83 loss Thursday to Utah State.But the Mavericks made the Western Athletic Conference game interesting late before losing their seventh consecutive game and having their home record drop to 0-7.After trailing 47-27 at halftime, UTA scored 56 points in the second half. The 83 points were the most the Mavericks have scored this season. But Utah State's 93 points were the most UTA has given up this season.With the Aggies (9-10, 6-2) leading 71-50 with 8:47 remaining in the game, the Mavericks (3-15, 1-7) went on a 17-2 run to cut the deficit to 73-67 with 6:06 left.Utah State responded with a 7-0 burst of its own before the Mavericks made a game of it by outscoring the visitors 11-1 to cut the deficit to 81-78 with 2:20 to play. Junior guard Malaika Green's 3-pointer capped the run and was as close as UTA came on a night in which it never led.Two 3-pointers by Devyn Christensen, however, rebuilt the Aggies lead to 87-78 with 1:05 left."It was two completely different halves," UTA coach Samantha Morrow said. "It's a little frustrating because we got within three, but they had an all-conference player that came down and nailed two straight 3-pointers and it wasn't close after that."UTA center Desherra Nwanguma fouled out but finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds.The Mavericks' seven-game losing streak is tied for the fourth longest in school history.
