MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Phillip Crawford finished 12 of 17 for a career-high 29 points and 17 rebounds as Alabama State held on to beat Mississippi Valley State 73-65 Monday.

Jamel Waters scored 11 points and Shawntez Patterson added 10 to help Alabama State (8-16, 5-6 Southwestern Athletic Conference) snap a three-game losing streak.

Trailing at halftime 40-27, Mississippi Valley State fought back to take a 54-53 lead on Davon Usher's jumper with 6:49 remaining.

After Usher's 3-pointer gave the Delta Devils a 59-56 advantage, Patterson's 3-pointer sparked a 7-0 run for Alabama State to give the Hornets the lead 65-59 with 4:26 left.
