    TOLEDO, Ohio- The Texas Southern Tigers jumped out to a 19 point lead over Toledo in the first half but TSU was unable to keep the momentum going in the second half as they dropped a 71-69 decision to the Rockets on the road.
    Texas Southern led 42-30 going into intermission but it was a tale of two halves as the Toledo Rockets began to connect on key shots in the games' final stanza while also making some critical stops.

    After the Rockets converted 1-of-2 free throws with eight seconds remaining in regulation Texas Southern had one last possession to either tie or win the game. But a three point attempt by Brian Carey as time expired fell short sealing the win in favor of Toledo.

    Donte Clark went 8-of-20 from the field for a team high 27 points while teammate Demotrae Jefferson connected on 8-of-25 shot attempts as he contributed 25 points for the Tigers offensively.

    Clark missed out on a double-double by one rebound as he tallied nine boards to go along with three assists, one block, and one steal in what was an all-around performance for the transfer guard.

    The Tigers will have over a week off before they take the court again as their next outing is slated to take place on Monday, Dec. 11 on the road at Oregon.
