In the season opener for both teams, the Huskies used a 10-1 second-half run to break open the game before holding on.
A Harper 3-pointer gave Houston Baptist a 10-point lead with 2:08 remaining, but Arkansas-Pine Bluff scored the next eight points. Lazabian Jackson ended the surge with a layup to make the score 68-66, but the Golden Lions were then forced to foul, and the Huskies protected the lead at the line.
Jackson finished with 12 points.
