    BEAUMONT, Texas -- Kevin Palmer scored 28 points to spark Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to a 79-55 victory over Lamar on Wednesday night.

    Palmer also had eight rebounds and four steals for the Islanders (15-14, 9-6 Southland), who shot 54.4 percent (31 of 57). Demond Watt added 11 points, and Justin Reynolds and Filip Toncinic had 10 each.

    Justin Nabors had a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Cardinals (14-17, 5-10). Anthony Miles led Lamar with 14 points, and Reggie Mathis scored 11.

    Lamar led for the last time at 23-22 before Palmer personally outscored the Cardinals 10-0 over a 2:14 span. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi never was in danger after that, and the lead was in double figures the entire final 15 minutes.

    The Islanders have clinched a spot in the conference tournament. Lamar is still alive but must win its finale and still would need help.
