SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Hal Bateman buried a 3-point shot with five-tenths of a second remaining to give Stephen F. Austin a 66-65 victory against Texas State on Wednesday night in the Southland Conference opener for both teams.

With five seconds remaining, Travis Jones hit a jumper, was fouled and made the free throw to give the Bobcats (7-7, 0-1) a two-point cushion. Bateman took the inbounds pass, dribbled three times to the left wing and he hit the shot that ended Texas State's 16-game home winning streak.

Taylor Smith led the Lumberjacks with 19 points and seven rebounds.

Brooks Ybarra scored 12 points and Reid Koenen 10 for the Bobcats, who shot 52 percent (26 of 50) from the floor and had 10 players score.
