Mavericks graduate student guard David Azore averaged 27 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3 assists to lead UTA to a road split with ULM and Louisiana. The Houston, Texas, native poured in 29 points in a 74-71 loss at ULM, before dropping 25 in an 80-77 overtime win at Louisiana. That victory gave UTA a season sweep of the Ragin’ Cajuns for just the second time in program history (1981). Azore paces the Sun Belt, averaging 19.9 points per game this season—including 25.5 points per game against conference opposition.
