HIDALGO, Texas, Jan. 31, 2009 - Dominique Coleman had 24 points, nine rebounds and eight assists Saturday night as the Colorado 14ers remained perfect against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers this season, winning a 131-124 shootout.

Colorado improved to 12-1 all-time vs. Rio Grande Valley and 5-0 this season, but it wasn't easy. Vipers guard Craig Winder scored a career-high 29 points to help RGV rally from a 13-point deficit.

Stanley Asumnu’s two free throws with 1:23 to play forged a 119-119 tie. Gill answered with a bucket, Coleman made two free throws and Gill hit a jumper as Colorado regrouped and held on.

Billy Thomas scored 19 points and Lamar Butler added 14 for Colorado, which shot 53 percent (41-of-77) from the field and made 40-of-48 free throws.

Trent Strickland scored 25 points, Alpha Bangura added 22 and Asumnu 21 for the Vipers, who shot 47 percent (43-of-91) but dropped their second straight game.
