CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Hameed Ali scored 12 points and Zane Knowles grabbed 11 rebounds as Texas A&M-Corpus Christi held Nichols State to just 11 first-half points, leading to a 58-44 victory on Saturday.

Nicholls State (13-14, 10-8) went scoreless for nearly 10 minutes in the first half and Texas A&M-CC (17-14, 14-4) led 19-11 at the break, in a slow-paced first period.

It took nearly 5 minutes for the Colonels to score in the second period and A&M-CC pushed the lead to 46-26 with 6 minutes remaining before Nicholls State picked up the pace. The Colonels ended the game with 44 points, two points shy of an Islander all-time record for fewest points allowed in a game.

Dantrell Thomas led Nicholls State with 14.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi hit 65 percent from the field and finished second in the conference, earning a double bye in the upcoming Southland Conference tournament.
