Reger Dowell — the No. 10 leading scorer in Division I at 22.7 per game — added 18 points for UTA. Senior guard Shaquille White-Miller added a game-high six assists off the bench.

It was UTA’s first road win of the season and the 14th straight over Houston Baptist.

The Mavericks closed the gap in the second half and tied it at 46 on Edwards’ jumper.

The lead repeatedly changed hands until UTA went on top for good, leading 60-58.

Edwards secured the win, scoring seven points in the final 2:30 to bring it home for the Mavericks.

The Huskies were led by Tyler Russell with 22 points.
