Orlando Johnson led the Spurs with 16 points while Daniel Nwaelele added 14.

Charles Garcia had a double-double, scoring 12 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Hollis Thompson also scored 12 points and added eight boards.

The Spurs outrebounded Iowa 55-42 with eight team members collecting at least five rebounds in the game.

Livio Jean-Charles had 10 points and contributed five rebounds.

The Energy (11-34) had just three players score in double digits as they went 28 for 86 from the field, including 5 for 24 from 3-point range.

Wes Washpun scored 14 points to lead the Energy. Jarell Martin and Perry Jones III each had 10 points.

The game was tight after the first quarter but the Spurs outscored the Energy by 13 points in the second period to take control of the game.

Austin built its lead to as many as 26 points by the fourth quarter. They trailed just once in the first quarter by two points.

The Spurs will next host the Santa Cruz Warriors on Thursday at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park. The win on Tuesday concluded a six-game road trip in which the Spurs went 4-2.
