Norfolk, VA (Sports Network) - Michael Hale III and Kannon Burrage delivered sensational backcourt play to push the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners to a 79-70 victory over the Old Dominion Monarchs in the final round of the Liberty Tax Classic at the Ted Constant Convocation Center.

Hale III scored a game-high 29 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Burrage poured in 20 points and grabbed six rebounds for UTSA (2-1), which picked up its second straight win. Jeromie Hill came up just short of a double-double for the Roadrunners with 14 points and nine rebounds.

Three of the four players to score in double-figures for Old Dominion (1-2) came off the bench. Guard Donte Hill was the only starter to reach double- figures as he went 8-of-10 from the charity stripe on his way to 10 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Aaron Bacote led the Monarchs with 15 points on 5- of-7 shooting from the floor. Dimitri Batten added 11 points and Richard Ross scored 10 in the losing effort.

UTSA was in control early and jumped out to a 28-14 lead in the first 10 minutes of play. The Monarchs chipped away at the deficit and went into the intermission trailing 40-37 after they shot 40 percent from the field and made 10-of-14 attempts at the free throw line in the first half. The Roadrunners converted 15-of-29 field goal attempts in the opening 20 minutes.

The visitors never surrendered the lead after halftime and did not let ODU come any closer than five points in the final eight minutes. UTSA made 10-of-14 free throws in the second half to secure the victory.

Three-point shooting was the difference as the Roadrunners drained 12-of-26 from distance while ODU converted only 5-of-17 from deep.
