MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Fred Sturdivant scored 22 points with 13 rebounds and Texas Southern won its 10th straight game 70-50 over Alabama State Monday night in Southwestern Athletic Conference action.

The double-double was Sturdivant's 11th and his third in his past four games. The senior was 11-of-15 shooting and blocked six shots. He was joined in double figures by Aaron Clayborn (12 points), Lawrence Johnson-Danner (12) and Ray Penn (10) for the Tigers (15-14, 14-2).
