Alcorn St. 57, Grambling St. 55


GRAMBLING, La. (AP) - Xavian Rimmer sank a pair of foul shots with 10 seconds left, lifting Alcorn State to a 57-55 win over Grambling State on Monday night.

Rimmer's shots salvaged the Braves (7-16, 4-7 Southwestern Athletic Conference) nearly giving away a 55-51 lead with 1 1/2 minutes left, as Quincy Roberts tied it at 55-all for the Tigers on a layup with 38 seconds remaining.

But Rimmer did his job, and Roberts couldn't win it for Grambling State as his jumper at the buzzer wouldn't fall.

The Braves overcame a six-point halftime deficit in the win, outscoring Grambling State 31-23 in the second half.
