HOUSTON -- Jesus Delgado scored 15 points Tuesday night, leading five Texas-Pan American players in double figures, and the Broncs defeated Houston Baptist 80-70 Tuesday night in the final Great West Conference opener for both schools.
Houston Baptist led 28-15 with 6 minutes remaining in the first half, but the Broncs trimmed their deficit to 32-26 by the break and then used a 16-1 run in the middle of the second half to take control.
UTPA will play in the WAC next season while Houston Baptist heads for the Southland Conference.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
