HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - DeMarcus Gatlin scored 16, and 12 Sam Houston State players scored to help the Bearkats beat NAIA-member Texas College 88-39 on Monday night.

Gatlin scored seven during a 24-0 run by Sam Houston State (19-5) to open the game and Texas College never threatened.

The Bearkats led 53-22 at halftime and Kyle McLeroy hit a pair of free throws with 4:15 left, giving Sam Houston State its biggest lead of the game, 82-32.

Aurimas Majaskas scored 15, Kaheem Ransom 14 and Dakarai Henderson 10 for Sam Houston State, which made 31 of 57 (54 percent) field goals and outrebounded Texas College 45-23.

Percy Evans led Texas College with nine points.

The Steers shot 27 percent from the field, including 5 of 18 from 3-point range, and made just 8 of 16 free throws.

Sam Houston has won five games in a row and 14 of its last 15.
