Jackson State Tigers

The Tigers managed an 8-10 start to the year, then took four straight losses. Those came versus Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M, Grambling and Southern. After wins over MS Valley State, AR-Pine Bluff, Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman, Jackson State lost to Alcorn State. In their matchup versus Alcorn State last weekend, Jackson State had a close call and came up short. The Tigers scored 34 points in the first half, 31 in the second and eight in overtime during an 87-73 loss. Keionte Cornelius was the leading team scorer with 19 points and two steals.

Texas Southern Tigers

Over on the Texas Southern side, they were a rough 5-12 through their first 17 games. The good news is that the Tigers are 7-2 since then, however. Texas Southern has beaten Alabama A&M, Alabama State, Prairie View, Florida A&M, Southern, MS Valley State and AR-Pine Bluff in that time.

In the AR-Pine Bluff matchup on Monday, the Tigers came out of the break with a 34-32 deficit. Texas Southern hit a 45-36 run the rest of the way and took the victory 77-70. PJ Henry was the leading contributor on the team with 25 points, five assists and five rebounds.


I’ll stay with Texas Southern. The Tigers had a great second half against AR-Pine Bluff in their last outing. Texas Southern hit 44.4 percent from the field overall with 33 rebounds and 80 percent (12-of-15) from the line in the victory. That makes 68 or more points in three straight (all wins).

Back on January 22 when these teams last saw each other, Texas Southern took a 73-64 road loss. both teams shot below 40 percent in that one and there were a combined 30 turnovers. Jackson State was better from the line (88 percent) however, which carried them to the win. I like Texas Southern to get a little revenge in the home rematch, but they’ve got to shoot much better this time.
