Prairie View A&M vs Southern

Southern U. 64, Prairie View 63


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Derick Beltran hit four 3-pointers en route to 26 points as Southern University edged Prairie View A&M 64-63 on Thursday night.

Quinton Doggett finished with 14 points and seven blocks for the Jaguars who held the Panthers to just 36.1 percent (13 of 36) shooting in the second half.

Southern led 41-32 with 18:19 left in the second half before Prairie View A&M (13-17, 9-8 Southwestern Athletic Conference) rallied to tie the game 59-all with 3:24 remaining.

But Beltran knocked down a 3-pointer and Jameel Grace made two free throws and the Jaguars (16-14,12-5) held the Panthers to just two points over the game's final 3 minutes to seal the win.

Prairie View held possession with six seconds left but Ryan Gesiakowski's 3-point attempt fell short and Jules Montgomery's put back was too little, too late.

Jimmie Duplessiss led Prairie View A&M with 15 and Montgomery added 14 boards.
