THIBODAUX, La. -- Dantrell Thomas had 18 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds to lead Nicholls to a 79-73 win over University of Texas at San Antonio Tuesday night.
Carpenter hit a 3-pointer to start the scoring and the Colonels built their lead to 37-27 at the half. UTSA (1-5) outscored Nicholls State 46-42 in the second half, but could never take the lead as the Colonels led throughout.
The Colonels were hot from the field, making 56.3 percent of their shots, as they were good on 10 of 23 three-point shots.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
