HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) Jacob Parker scored 20 points as Stephen F. Austin turned away its closest pursuer in the Southland Conference, Sam Houston State, 67-60 on Saturday.

Thomas Walkup added 16 points and Nikola Gajic 12 for SFA.

Up nine with 13:39 left, the Lumberjacks went on a 7-0 run over the next 2 minutes.
