HAMMOND, La. (AP) Nick Caldwell scored 15 points and Ty Brewer scored 12 and Southeastern Louisiana beat scrappy NAIA-member Xavier (LA) 77-70 on Monday night.

William Lloyd's layup for the Gold Rush tied the score at 11-all with 10 1/2 minutes to play before halftime. But the Lions (1-1) outscored Xavier 25-6 to end the half up 36-17.

Johnell Lane's 3-pointer reduced Xavier's deficit to 55-47 with 9 1/2 minutes remaining, and a little more 60 seconds late, William Lloyd made a pair of free throws to make it a five-point game. But the Lions used a 17-6 run to make it 74-58 on LaQuan Butler's jumper with 3 1/2 minutes to go.

Lloyd finished with 20 points and the Gold Rush shot 27 of 51 (52.9%).
