    HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Lance Pevehouse scored 13 points Saturday in Sam Houston State's 74-56 victory over Nicholls State.

    The Bearkats (9-7, 2-1 Southland Conference) also got 12 points from Gilberto Clavell, 11 from Drae Murray and 10 from Josten Crow.

    Anatoly Bose scored 15 points for the Colonels (7-7, 1-2), but no one else reached double figures.

    The Bearkats bolted to a 10-0 lead and never trailed. They led 35-25 at halftime, then scored the first 15 points after the break.

    Sam Houston State shot 54.0 percent (27 of 50) and 50.0 percent (7 of 14) from 3-point range.

    Nicholls State was limited to 29.2 percent (18 of 62) and 21.7 percent (5 of 23) on 3-pointers.

    The Bearkats held a 44-35 rebounding edge, led by Antuan Bootle's 12.
