BEAUMONT, Texas -- Johnathan Jordan scored 15 points and dished out a career-high 11 assists Saturday night, helping Texas A&M-Corpus Christi snap a 12-game losing streak with a 62-56 victory over free-falling Lamar.
The Islanders never trailed but saw Lamar pull within 57-54 on Keilan Blanks' layup with 1:26 left. But Jordan made five free throws in the final 23 seconds to seal the victory.
The Cardinals still lead the all-time series with A&M-Corpus Christi, 15-5.
Authorities say former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon and other crimes.
Point guard Jaylen Fisher, who reopened his recruitment after coaching changes at UNLV, has committed to TCU over a long list of schools.
Forward Kennedy Meeks, who has averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds at North Carolina, has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to the Tar Heels.
