SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Shawn Johnson made all four attempts from beyond the arc and scored 19 points to lead Incarnate Word to a 70-56 Southland Conference win over Northwestern State on Saturday.

Johnson was 7 of 10 from the floor. Kyle Hittle had 14 points and nine rebounds and Derail Green and Jontrell Walker chipped in 10 apiece for Incarnate Word (6-7, 1-1).

The Cardinals, who never trailed, had a 45-34 lead at the half.
