    SAN ANTONIO -- Morris Smith IV, Omar Johnson and Devin Gibson each scored 14 points as UTSA held off a late charge by Nicholls State for a 64-59 victory Wednesday night.

    Anatoly Bose scored 24 points and Fred Hunter had 20 for the Colonels (5-10, 1-1).

    UTSA went up 62-53 on two free throws by Johnson with 1:27 remaining, but Nicholls State quickly cut the margin to 62-59 on 3-pointers by Chris Iles and Bose with 48 second to play.
