SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) -- Shaquille White-Miller hit two free throws with 15.9 seconds left and Texas-Arlington closed the game on a 7-0 run to defeat Texas State 82-79 Saturday and extend its school-record winning streak to 11 games.

White-Miller's free throws gave the Mavericks (15-5, 7-0 Southland) an 80-79 lead, and after a Texas State turnover, LeMarcus Reed added two more for the final margin.

Texas State (8-12, 1-6), which has lost four straight, led 79-75 with 1:11 remaining but turned the ball over on its next three possessions.

Reed led Texas-Arlington with 17 points. White-Miller and Bo Ingram added 12 each, Kevin Butler had 11 and Brandon Edwards 10.

Brooks Ybarra had 17 points, Matt Staff and Wesley Davis 14 each, and Eddie Rios 12 for Texas State.

Texas-Arlington has played four of its last five games on the road, but returns home for its first game at the new on-campus College Park Center on Wednesday against UTSA.
