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

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

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.
