Seniors Kevin Hervey and Erick Neal each had double-double performances but another senior stole the show Saturday as UTA (18-12, 9-8 Sun Belt) strengthened its chances to earn one of four first-round byes in the conference tournament March 7-11 in New Orleans.

Before the game, Hamilton proposed to his girlfriend, Rachael Ross.
During the game, Hamilton scored 14 points, grabbed six rebounds and had three blocks, setting the school's single-season record for swatted shots.
