JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Christian Williams scored 28 points to lead Jackson State to an 80-67 victory over Grambling State in Southwestern Athletic Conference play Saturday night.

Jackson State (5-14, 3-4) began the game with a 23-5 run and never trailed.

Grambling State (2-15, 2-5) closed to within seven points at halftime, 35-28, but Jackson State increased its lead back to double digits, 40-30, on Kelsey Howard's 3-pointer with 17:38 remaining. Jackson State never led by fewer than 10 points after that.

The win was the second in a row for Jackson State, which played without its leading scorer, Jenirro Bush. The senior guard ruptured his Achilles tendon in a 54-51 victory over Texas Southern on Monday.

Quincy Roberts scored 28 points to lead Grambling State, which lost its third in a row. The junior guard came in averaging 27.5 points in his team's six previous conference games, the best mark in the SWAC.
