Texas-San Antonio 59, SE Louisiana 51

Jeromie Hill scored 16 points and Michael Hale III and Igor

Nujic added 10 points each to lead UTSA to a 59-51 victory over

Southeastern Louisiana on Wednesday night.

The Roadrunners (15-9, 7-3 Southland) snapped a two-game losing

streak.

Jeremy Campbell had 10 points for the Lions (8-14, 2-8).

Nujic, a reserve averaging 4.7 points a game, picked up the

slack on a night when leading scorer Melvin Johnson III was the

main focus of the opposing defense. Johnson was held to five points

on 1 of 6 shooting in 23 minutes.

In a game that featured nine ties and 10 lead changes,

Campbell’s layup got Southeastern Louisiana within 53-51 with two

minutes remaining, but he was called for a foul on the play, and

Nujic hit both free throws.

Seconds later, Hale made a steal and scored on a layup to

increase UTSA’s lead to six points. The Lions’ last three

possessions ended with a turnover, three missed free throws by Todd

Nelson and a missed 3-point attempt by Campbell.
