HAMMOND, Louisiana — Jontrell Walker scored 19 points and Mitchell Badillo added 15 as Incarnate Word held off Southeastern Louisiana for a 75-71 win in Southland Conference action on Saturday.

Walker was 7 of 10 from the floor and made three treys. Badillo made 6 of 8 field goals and dished out five assists for Incarnate Word (8-7, 3-1) which has won three straight for the first time this season. Derail Green and Kyle Hittle added 12 apiece for the Cardinals.

Trailing 43-42 early in the second period, Hittle made a layup and Walker followed with a 3-pointer to start a 20-8 run to give Incarnate Word a 62-51 lead at the 8:50 mark.
