BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Gary Blackston had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Dennis Jones scored 11 with eight assists to help Prairie View A&M beat Southern 82-73 on Saturday night in the Southwestern Conference opener for both teams.

Chancellor Ellis scored 13 points, Devonte Patterson added 11 and Iwin Ellis 10 for PVAMU. The Panthers (3-11) have won two in a row following an 11-game skid.

They stretched the advantage to 27 points before Blackston's 3 made it 71-46 with 6 1/2 minutes to go.
