CEDAR CITY (AP) — Brandon Better scored 26 points, Jadon Cohee added 25 — both career highs — and Southern Utah beat Long Beach State 94-89 on Wednesday night.

LBSU's only field goal in the final three minutes came on Deishuan Booker's 3-point play with nine seconds left. Better made two of his seven free throws at the other end.
