View Comments

DENVER (AP) — University of Denver junior forward Chris Udofia scored 18 points and had five blocked shots, leading the Pioneers to a share of the Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship and their 10th-straight win with a 78-54 rout of Louisiana Tech on Saturday night.

Denver (21-8, 16-2 WAC), which shares the WAC crown with the Bulldogs (26-5, 16-2), will head to the conference tournament in Las Vegas with a 17-1 record since New Year’s Eve and will open WAC Tournament play on Thursday at the Orleans Arena.

Louisiana Tech had three men with 9 points — Raheem Appleby, Cordarius Johnson and Alex Hamilton.
