BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) -- Anthony Miles scored 18 points, Mike James added 17 and Lamar kept pace at the top of the Southland Conference East Division standings with a 70-54 victory Wednesday over Southeastern Louisiana.

Devon Lamb and Charlie Harper chipped in 11 points each and Lamb pulled down 10 rebounds for the Cardinals (17-9, 8-4), who stayed two games behind McNeese State for first place in the division.

Lamar improved to 11-1 at home and completed a season sweep of the Lions (9-15, 3-9), who got 18 points and 12 rebounds from Roosevelt Johnson but shot just 36 percent from the field, including 0 of 11 on 3-pointers.

The Cardinals never trailed after the opening minutes. A 15-0 run, capped by a Stan Brown jumper, gave Lamar an 18-4 lead midway through the first half. The Lions cut it to 34-27 just after halftime, but Lamar pulled away and cruised to the win.
