The top-ranked St. Thomas Tommies (18-1 overall, 13-1 MIAC) shot 68 percent in the second half, including 7-of-10 from 3-point range, in Saturday's 35-point home men's basketball win over the Hamline Pipers (7-12, 4-10).
UST improved to 10-0 at home and extended its conference lead to three games over second-place Augsburg with six games to play in the regular season.
The Toms rallied from an early 24-16 deficit but led just 33-30 at halftime. A 29-4 St. Thomas second-half run blew open the game.
Will DeBerg scored 19 points and Marcus Alipate had 14, as Alipate made 4-of-5 treys after halftime. UST had only seven turnovers and posted a 33-21 rebounding edge.
Noah Aguirre scored 12 points for Hamline.
