SAN ANTONIO -- Freshman Jhivvan Jackson came off the bench to hit four 3-pointers and score 22, Keaton Wallace added 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists and UT San Antonio shocked Western Kentucky 74-63 on Saturday.
The Roadrunners (13-11, 6-5 Conference USA) knocked down 8 of 23 shots from 3-point range (35 percent), while holding the Hilltoppers (16-7, 8-2) to 2 of 20 from distance.
