Miles Anthony, who finished with seven points, made the go-ahead jumper with 42 seconds left to put the Cardinals (13-11, 5-4 Southland) up 47-46.

Nabors was then fouled with 24 seconds to go and put in a pair of free throws to strengthen the lead.

It was Nabors’ 12th double-double of the season. It was also the first time Lamar won a game scoring less than 50 points since Feb. 26, 1990, when the team beat McNeese State 48-47.
