JACKSON (AP) – Raeford Worsham scored 20 points with 13 rebounds and Jackson State edged Prairie View 60-57 Monday night.
Janarius Middleton drilled a 3-pointer with 1:04 left to put Jackson State (9-10, 4-2 Southwestern Athletic) up by six, 60-54. Tevin Bellinger was fouled making a layup, and hit the free throw to trim the Prairie View deficit to three with 51 seconds to go. But Bellinger and Zachary Hamilton both missed 3-pointers in the waning seconds and Jackson State held on.
Worsham was 6 of 8 from the field and 8 of 14 from the line. Chace Franklin scored 11 points for the Tigers.
Prairie View (1-16, 1-4) was led by Bellinger with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting. Despite dominating the scoring in the paint (32-20), the Panthers hit 1 of 14 from beyond the arc and were outrebounded 39-30.
