ABILENE, Texas (AP) — Jalin Hart scored 23 points and Sam Burmeister had 16 on 6-for-9 shooting and Incarnate Word shot 62 percent to beat Abilene Christian 89-75 Wednesday.
After Burmeister's layup gave Incarnate Word (12-16, 7-10 Southland) a 50-39 lead with 15:31 remaining, Abilene Christian's B.J. Maxwell scored eight of the Wildcats' next nine points — including a pair of 3s — and the 9-0 run reduced the deficit to two.
Jaren Lewis' layup with 9:15 left brought the Wildcats to within 61-60, but Incarnate Word responded with its own 9-0 run as Hart made a 3 and followed with a layup and Abilene Christian (13-15, 7-10) never threatened again.
Shawn Johnson scored 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Jorden Kite scored 11 for the Cardinals. Incarnate Word shot 31 for 50 including 9 for 19 from 3-point range.
