    Octavious Brown led the Braves (8-13, 5-4) with 18 points and LeAntwan Luckett came off the bench to add 13, though he hit just 3 of 16 shots.

    Southern led 28-20 at halftime and opened the second half with quick 3's from Miller and Johnson. Alcorn State quickly cut the deficit down to 5 but a 14-5 run pushed the Jaguars back on top 50-35.

    The Braves had a 7-0 run to cut it to 55-48 with 2:05 to play and began sending Southern to the line. However, the Jags were just 7 of 12, although Alcorn couldn't capitalize.
