Kingsville (Kiii Sports) - The Texas A&M-Kingsville men's basketball team put on a defensive exhibition Tuesday night in the first half against St. Edward's and held on to pick up its second-straight win 60-52 on Kingsville Hampton Inn Court.


In the first half, Kingsville (2-1) held the visiting Hilltoppers (3-3) to a 12.5% shooting from the floor as St. Edward's hit 4-of-32 shots. The Javelinas led 28-15 at the intermission,

The Hilltoppers warmed up late in the final half to make a late run at the hosts hitting 12-of-31 in the second half. They finished 25.4% from the floor.
Kingsville, which led by as many as 13 in the first half, built an 18-point lead in the second half with eight minutes remaining on a put back by Adam Mughmaw. The Javelinas finished 21-of-45 from the floor.

The Toppers began to chip away moments later as James Stukes netted five-straight points including a three-point basket with 6:35 left to make it 49-36.
Point guard Rashad Basey, who led the Javelinas in scoring for the third time in as many games, picked up an offensive foul with 6:09 left and was forced to the bench.  He returned with 3:12 to go.
In the time Basey was on the bench, the visitors cut their deficit from 13 to seven, 53-46, on a Shimeek Johnson trey.
St. Edward's Tyler Foster drained a three-point basket to make it 54-51 with 2:13 left.

After struggling with free throws in the season opening loss to Texas A&M International, Kingsville was 4-of-4 in the final 72 seconds. Mughmaw, who had a season-high 11 points to go with 10 boards for his first double-double, hit two as did Dwight Taylor. The Javelinas finished 16-of-21 from the line in the game. St. Edward's was 13-of-26 from the stripe.
