    ITTA BENA, Miss. -- Jordan Washington scored 19 points and delivered 10-of-11 free throws in helping Mississippi Valley State get past Tougaloo College 89-81 on Saturday night.

    James Currington chipped in 16 points shooting 7 for 9, while Daniel Hurtt hit double figures with 11.

    Mississippi Valley State (3-6) led at halftime 43-31, but NAIA member Tougaloo toughened-up, shooting 71 percent and outscoring MVSU 50-46 in the second half. Still, it was not enough as MVSU shot over 66 percent themselves in the period.
