The University of Dallas men's basketball team continues its four-game road trip with a Tuesday night matchup at University of the Ozarks. Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m.
The Crusaders (0-1) are looking to respond from an 81-67 setback at Hendrix College last week. Dallas was limited to 25.9 percent field goal shooting in the first half, but did make 14-of-25 in the second half for a 56 percent clip. The Crusaders narrowed the gap to 11 with a little under five minutes in the game, but could not overcome a 28-point gap.
