Thomas scores 18, helps New Orleans into Southland semifinal

KATY, Texas (AP) Conference player of the year Erik Thomas scored 18 points, making all 10 of his free throws, and top seed New Orleans defeated Sam Houston State 75-63 on Friday in a Southland Conference Tournament semifinal.

The Privateers (19-11), aiming for their first NCAA Tournament bid since 1996, play No. 2 seed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, which knocked off three-time defending champion and No. 3 seed Stephen F. Austin, on Saturday.

Christavious Gill scored 15 points while Tevin Broyles and Nate Frye added 10 each for New Orleans, which lost to the Bearkats by two on Jan. 12. The Privateers shot 50 percent, all but three of their 24 field goals coming inside the arc.
