SAN MARCOS, Texas -- Reger Dowell came off the bench to score 16 points and grab five rebounds as Texas-Arlington held on to beat Texas State 56-48 on Saturday.

Lonnie McClanahan had 12 points for the Mavericks (7-10, 2/3 Sun Belt) and Jamel Outler scored 11.

The Mavericks went 10-2 to start but the Bobcats struggled back to take a 24-22 lead on a Phil Hawkins 3-pointer with 1:11 left in the first period.

The Mavericks outscored Texas State 16-8 early in the second to go up 38-32 with 11:37 left to play. The Bobcats came within two on a Wesley Davis layup with 4:23 to play before Dowell helped put it away for the Mavericks by going 4-of-4 from the free throw line in the final 40 seconds.

Gordon Ball led the Bobcats (5-13, 1-4) -- who have now lost five of their last six games -- with 10 points and seven rebounds.
