SAN ANTONIO -- Kevon Harris scored 25 points and sank the game-winning free throws with 27 seconds remaining as Stephen F. Austin edged Incarnate Word 74-71 on Saturday, halting a three-game slide in the Southland Conference.
Harris, who surpassed 1,000 career points during the game, broke a 71-71 tie when he was fouled. Shannon Bogues made one of two from the line with two seconds remaining for insurance but Incarnate Word's final toss didn't connect as time ran out.
Bogues finished with 15 points and Davonte Fitzgerald added 16 for the Lumberjacks (9-8, 2-3), who shot 55 percent, 23 of 42.
Jordan Caruso knotted the game at 71-71 with 44 seconds to go and finished with 14 points for the Cardinals (6-12, 1-4). Christian Peevy led with 16, Morgan Taylor scored 15 and dished seven assists. Charles Brown, who took the last-second desperation shot, scored 12 points, 1 of 6 from beyond the arc.
Incarnate Word has dropped three in a row and seven of its last eight.
