The move from the Southland to the WAC (which precedes another move to CUSA next year) doesn't appear to be going as smoothly as planned for Brooks Thompson's UTSA Roadrunners.
Recent heavy losses to San Jose and New Mexico State are the latest indicators that UTSA might lack the depth and manpower to compete at a higher level this season. Without a lot of size and with mini 5'9 scoring G Michael Hale III in a recent shooting slump (only 7 for 23 from the floor his last three games), there aren't many ways for Thompson to turn these days. And note UTSA's 20 ppg margin of loss in road defeats at BYU, Oregon, CS Bakersfield, Mississippi State, and NMSU. Much prefer Joe Scott's Denver side that has been in against much tougher than this foe but has recorded each of its six wins by double-digit margins (in fact, win margin of hefty 22 ppg). The Pioneers also have lots of size on the perimeter with 6'5 Gs Brett Olson & Chase Hallam to cause the Roadrunners fits, while versatile frontliners Royce O'Neale (13.6 ppg) & Chris Udofia (12.2 ppg) are always matchup headaches for the opposition.
