Things start slow for CMU men's basketball on Saturday night , but it was the bench that sparked the Mavs to the 93-75 win over Central Methodist in the last game of the Holiday Inn Airport Thanksgiving Classic.
Offensively CMU was led once again by Emilio Acedo with 23 points on 50 percent shooting from the field.
The bench is where the Mavs lived by on Saturday night. They outscored the bench of the Eagles 37-25 with three bench players in double figures.
Colorado Mesa will be back in action next Tuesday when they begin RMAC play hosting Western State University at Brownson arena.
