EDINBURG (AP) — Gabe McGlothan had 18 points as Grand Canyon beat Texas Rio Grande Valley 84-70 on Thursday night.

Holland Woods added 17 points for the Antelopes, while Sean Miller-Moore chipped in 15.

Jovan Blacksher Jr. had 13 points and six assists for Grand Canyon (12-2, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference), which earned its fourth consecutive victory.

Mike Adewunmi scored a season-high 20 points and had 10 rebounds for the Vaqueros (5-9, 0-2) and Justin Johnson added 16 points and seven rebounds.

The Antelopes led by 10 at halftime, and the game was never in doubt from there. They shot a season-best 58% from the floor and hit 48% of their threes.

Nine of GCU’s 12 wins this season have been by double digits.

The Antelopes take on the Lamar Cardinals in Texas on Saturday. They then return home next Thursday to host Abilene Christian.
