D.J. Magley sparks Tulsa to huge victory

D.J. Magley turned in his best game at Tulsa sparking the Golden Hurricanes to a 69-68 victory over Conference USA leader UTEP (Texas El-Paso) on Saturday.

The former Bradenton Christian standout scored 10 points, led Tulsa with seven rebounds and three blocked shots while converting all five of his field goal attempts in 27 minutes on the floor.

Magley’s effort couldn’t have come at a better time, giving Tulsa a huge win over a top opponent and taking the sting out of a one point loss the Hurricanes suffered at the hands of SMU earlier in the week.

“It was a good experience for me and my team so we can just go out there and win. We have all the properties and all the talent to win games like this,” Magley told the media after the game.

A 6-9 junior, Magley is averaging 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while leading Tulsa in field goal percentage with a 56 percent accuracy mark. He transferred from Western Kentucky and had to sit out last season.

UTEP came into the game with a 5-1 conference record and 17-4 overall. With the win Tulsa moved over the .500 mark at 11-10 and is 4-3 in conference play.
