EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Brandon West scored 14 points and grabbed 22 rebounds to lead Jackson State to a 57-51 win over Evansville on Saturday.

Egidijus Mockevicius led the Aces (6-5) with 16 points and D.J. Balentine had 12.

A big key for the Tigers was holding Balentine down. Balentine entered the game as the 4th leading scorer in the nation at 23.9 points a game. And the defense was not just focused on one player as Evansville was held to 25 below its average and the 34 percent shooting, 15 percent below average.
