PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas (AP) Dennis Jones made just one shot on Saturday night, a key 3-pointer with 15 seconds left that helped Prairie View A&M beat Jackson State 55-51 and remain undefeated in Southwestern Athletic Conference play.
Jackson State led 49-48 when Devonte Patterson's layup with 2:31 to play gave the Panthers the lead for good. The Tigers had possession with less than a minute to play, but Gary Blackston forced a turnover that set up Jones' 3. Dontelius Ross missed a 3-point attempt for Jackson State and Antione Lister made two free throws with three seconds left to seal it.
Gerard Andrus scored 12 points for Prairie View A&M (6-11, 4-0). Jones was 1 of 6 from the floor and had four assists and two steals. Blackston added 10 points and 10 rebounds. Lister chipped in 11 points and Patterson had nine.
