ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Jalen Jones hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 points to help lead Texas-Arlington to an easy 99-49 win over Division III Texas-Dallas on Monday night.

Erick Neal added 15 points and a career-high 13 assists for the Mavericks (7-3), who finished with 23 assists overall, the first time they have reached the 20-plus plateau this season.

The win gives Texas-Arlington six straight.

Jon Hatcher scored 13 points and hit 4 of 9 from 3-point land to lead Texas-Dallas, which was held to only 32.7 percent shooting and made just five of their 17 free throws.

The Mavericks led by 20 at halftime and killed any potential comeback early in the second. Jorge Bilbao made a layup and Neal hit a jumper for a 67-42 lead. A layup by Jones extended the Mavericks’ advantage past 40, and a Julian Harris jumper made it 90-45 with 4:51 left.
