Final Score: Denver 74, Nebraska-Omaha 60

Omaha, NE (SportsNetwork.com) - Bryant Rucker scored 19 points, leading four players in double figures, as the Denver Pioneers captured a 74-60 win over the Mavericks of Nebraska-Omaha in Summit League action at Ralston Arena.

Marcus Byrd, who matched Rucker on the perimeter with 4-of-5 shooting behind the 3-point line, added 16 points off the bench, followed by Brett Olson and Cam Griffin with 15 and 13 points, respectively, for the Pioneers (9-10, 2-2 Summit) as they delivered a second win in as many tries.

The Mavericks (11-8, 1-3), losers of four of the last five, were paced by John Karhoff with 18 points and five assists, one of only two players on the team to convert more than just a pair of field goals.
