CONWAY, Ark. -- LeQuentin Miles scored 30 points and pulled down 14 rebounds as Central Arkansas defeated Lamar 76-69 Saturday night.
Central Arkansas (8-19, 5-11 Southland Conference), which trailed 61-60 with 3:56 left in the game, went on a 10-3 run to take a 70-64 lead with 1:28 remaining. Lamar could not answer.
UCA knocked off Sam Houston State, the conference's second place team, 80-71 Thursday night.
The Bears made 6 of 15 3-point attempts, while limiting Lamar to just 1 of 10 from the perimeter. UCA hit 49.1 percent of its field goal attempts.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
