HOUSTON -- Joshua Filmore hit a go-ahead jumper with five seconds remaining to help Southeastern Louisiana outlast Rice 63-62 Tuesday night.

The Lions (1-1) overcame a 36-22 deficit at half, surging back and tying the game at 50 on a 3-pointer by JaMichael Hawkins.

Rice (1-1) pulled back in the lead on a jumper by Drew Bender and free throws from Marcus Jackson. The two teams traded baskets back and forth to make the score 58-58.

Following a Max Guercy free throw, Benton hit a jumper to make it 60-59, but Jackson then nailed a 3-pointer to put the Owls up by two with 23 seconds left.

JaMichael Hawkins missed a potential game-tying free throw, but Sean Obi slipped while corralling the rebound, giving the ball back to the Lions.

Filmore hit a pull-up jumper to put SE Louisiana on top, and Jackson missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer as time expired.
