UCA loses to Stephen F. Austin



CONWAY, Ark. (AP) Deshaunt Walker came off the bench to score 19 points, including five 3-pointers at crucial junctures, as Stephen F. Austin defeated Central Arkansas 66-49 Saturday, pushing its national-best road win streak to eight.
Jacob Parker led the Lumberjacks (18-2, 7-0 Southland) with 21 points and 11 boards, but it was Central Arkansas (4-14, 1-6) that had the hot hand early. The Bears ran off the first nine points with LaQuentin Miles leading the early charge. Miles finished with 23 points.
Walker hit a jumper for a 14-13 lead and Parker dunked for a 16-14 lead as the Lumberjacks took over. Walker hit a pair of big 3-pointers late in the first half, each time giving the Lumberjacks some breathing room, and did it again with back-to-back 3s late in the game, blunting the Bears after they had closed to 47-41. The Lumberjacks owned a 39-20 rebounding edge.
