PUEBLO, Colo. - The ThunderWolves' three-point shot was hitting nothing but net Friday night as CSU-Pueblo used 14 three-pointers, including seven by Dylan Fritsch (Sr., Albuquerque, N.M.), to down Western New Mexico 91-61.
CSU-Pueblo had an outstanding start to the game, answering Western New Mexico's game-starting bucket with a 23-4 run that put the Pack up by double-digits in a dominant affair. The Pack tossed in the three-ball from the very beginning - and it fell with great regularity.
Fritsch led the rainstorm of treys with seven, going 7-for-13 from beyond the arc to lead all scorers with 21.
But Fritsch's teammates provided the appetizers for his main course.
A total of five different ThunderWolves sank three-pointers, including two by Julian Caldwell (Jr., Ontario, Calif.), who turned in a career-high 20 points and seven assists, rising up as the primary partner for Fritsch on his three-point bombs.
Wendell Lee (Sr., Los Angeles, Calif.) rounded out the Pack's double-digit scorers with three three-pointers and 13 points. Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference assist leader Nate Tigner (Sr., Fort Worth, Texas) kept up his average with seven assists on the night.
CSU-Pueblo improves to 4-1 in conference play with the win and 6-3 overall. The Pack will look to go into January with seven wins under its belt for the first time since 2003 when it hosts New Mexico Highlands Saturday night.
