Southeastern Louisiana vs Sam Houston State

Sam Houston St. 54, SE Louisiana 45


HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - James Thomas scored 15 points and Sam Houston State never trailed Saturday in a 54-45 victory over Southeastern Louisiana.

Thomas was 7 of 14 from the floor for the Bearkats (15-14, 8-8), who moved into a tie with Southeastern Louisiana for fourth place in the Southland Conference standings. Each team has two regular-season games remaining.

Brandon Fortenberry scored 22 points for the Lions (10-17, 8-8) but didn't get much help. Fortenberry was 9 of 18 from the field, including three 3-pointers; his teammates were a combined 9 of 32.

The Bearkats scored the first six points of the game and led 27-15 at halftime. The Lions pulled within 45-39 on Fortenberry's 3-pointer with 4:21 left, but SHSU made enough free throws in the final minutes to secure the victory.

Sam Houston State dominated the glass, outrebounding Southeastern Louisiana 39-25, and won despite committing 17 turnovers.
