HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Demarcus Gatlin scored 19 points and Marcus James added 18 to lead Sam Houston State to a 71-68 victory against Texas State on Wednesday night.

The Bearkats (8-10, 2-2 Southland Conference) led 70-63 with 2:35 remaining when Texas State mounted a furious comeback. The Bobcats (8-9, 1-3) needed just 15 seconds to cut the margin to two points with a Reid Koenen layup and Eddie Rios 3-pointer.

But Texas State went scoreless the rest of the way. After Sam Houston State got a free throw by Marquel McKinney with six seconds left, Vonn Jones missed a 3-point shot at the buzzer for the Bobcats.

Konner Tucker had 10 points and Steven Werner nine rebounds for the Bearkats.
