Texas A&M-CC secures last tourney slot with 92-87 victory

HOUSTON (AP) Joseph Kilgore, who finished with a career-high 36 points, slammed home a dunk and added three free throws in the final seconds to secure the victory as Texas A&M-Corpus Christi rallied to beat Houston Baptist 92-87 on Saturday night to get the final seed for the Southland Conference Tournament.

Going into the last game there were three teams vying for the No. 8 and final seed in the tournament. The Islanders (11-17, 8-10) survived to play another day and will see tournament action on Wednesday in Katy, Texas.

Texas A&M-CC was behind 39-34 at the break but had a 76-73 lead after Kareem South drained consecutive 3-pointers with 4:45 remaining. Houston Baptist stayed close and trailed 85-84 with less than a minute to go after scoring six unanswered points. David Bloom made two free throws and Kilgore followed with the dunk and three free throws to secure the win.
