The Austin College men's basketball team trailed by 13 points at halftime and was unable to come all the way back against Texas Lutheran on Friday, falling 87-79 to the Bulldogs in Seguin. The 'Roos fell to 7-11 overall and 3-5 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play with the loss.

TLU came out blazing hot from long distance in the first half to build a 42-29 halftime lead, with the Bulldogs hitting 9-of-14 first half three pointers. TLU's Jordan Kouremetis hit 6-of-6 from behind the arc in the first half. 

Kevin Graham scored all of his team-high 14 points in the second half as Austin College out-scored the Bulldogs 50-45 after the break, but it would not be enough to overcome 20 makes from the free throw line in the second half for TLU. Graham hit 4-of-7 shots, including 3-of-6 threes and added five assists.

Cedric Hudson chipped in 12 points, and Brian Baehl finished with 11 for the 'Roos in the loss.
