HOUSTON -- Jeremy Smith led the way with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting as Nicholls beat Houston Baptist 75-62 for a sweep of the season series on Thursday night.
Nicholls (13-13, 10-7 Southland Conference) used a 10-0 run to extend its lead to 60-48 with just less than six minutes to play and Houston Baptist (6-24, 2-15) never challenged from there.
The Colonels jumped ahead 14-4 and led the rest of the way. Houston Baptist closed the deficit to 50-48 on an Alex Fountain free throw with 8:57 left but the Huskies would get no closer.
Rob Lewis led Houston Baptist with 28 points and Colton Lasher scored 10.
