GRAMBLING, La. – Grambling State's Jason Perry-Murray tipped in a missed shot with .03 of a second remaining as GSU rallied in the final seconds to defeat Texas Southern, 79-78 on Monday night at the Fredrick C. Hobdy Assembly Center.
Grambling State led by as many as six points in the final 24 seconds, but watched as Texas Southern stormed back to grab a 78-77 lead with six seconds remaining after a Donte Clark dunk and subsequent free throw.
