HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) Marcus Harris scored a career-best 27 points and Sam Houston State cruised past Houston Baptist 81-68 on Saturday night.

Sam Houston State took an early first-half lead and held it. Almanza, Harris and Delaney combined for five 3-pointers in the final four minutes to help build to a 39-33 advantage at the break.
