    NORMAL, Ala. -- YonDarius Johnson scored 22 points to lead Southern University over Alabama A&M 70-62 on Saturday.

    Southern (16-11, 12-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) used a 10-0 run midway through the first half, eight by Calvin Godfrey, to go up 24-13 and the Jaguars led 36-27 at the half.

    The lead grew to 14 after Tre Lynch's 3-pointer with 12:33 left, but A&M (10-13, 7-6) whittled it down to six with 4:44 left on Arthur Capers' trey. But Capers missed a free throw, and Southern's Bryce Clark made a jumper on the next possession and a pair of free throws a minute later, which put the Jags back up 10.

    Southern shot 52 percent from the floor. Godfrey had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Malcolm Miller added 11 points.

    Capers finished with 16 points to lead Alabama A&M, while Jeremy Crutcher added 14.
