Point guard James Batemon scored 20 of his game-high 26 points in the second half Wednesday night as Loyola Marymount rallied to beat the University of the Incarnate Word 91-87.
With Loyola Marymount trailing by seven, Batemon scored 10 points in a row to lift the Lions into a 77-74 lead with 4:25 remaining.
Loyola Maymount (3-1) never trailed again.
Freshman forward Christian Peevy scored 20 off the bench for UIW (3-1).
Senior forward Shawn Johnson pumped in 15 of his 18 in the first half, when the Cardinals took a 46-41 lead into the dressing room at intermission.
Near the end of a physical, fast-paced contest, UIW post Charles Brown III suffered a right leg injury and had to come off the floor.
The Cardinals play next on Saturday at the University of Houston.
