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.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
