SAN ANTONIO -- Max Jacobsen and Aaseem Dixon each scored a game-high 17 points and were two of four players in double figures for Northern Arizona as they took down UTSA 74-63 in a season opener for both teams Saturday night.

The Roadrunners attempted a late surge, outscoring Northern Arizona by eight in the remaining minutes, but couldn't climb back.
