James Thomas scored 17 points and pulled down ten rebounds but Sam Houston fell to Nicholls State 56-53 at Johnson Coliseum Thursday night.

The Bearkats took a 51-49 lead on a James Thomas layup with 1:03 left to play. Nicholls came right down the floor and Dantrell Thomas nailed a three to retake the lead, 52-51. The Kats couldn't get a basket on the following possession and Nicholls' Thomas hit a pair of free throws to put the game away.

"We were in kind of a funk all night," said coach Jason Hooton. "We shot just 35% for the game."

Dantrell Thomas scored 22 points, including a trio of three pointers. Fred Hunter scored ten points and pulled down 14 boards.

The Kats started slowly and trailed by as much as 15-6 in the first half before going on a 14-2 run to take a 20-17 lead at the break.

Paul Baxter and Will Bond each had nine points and Darius Gatson chipped in eight.

The Bearkats will host Southeastern Louisiana Saturday for Senior Da
