The Tigers improved their shooting from the floor in the second half going 15-of-28 good for 53 percent.

Defensively Texas Southern forced 10 Jackson State turnovers which turned into 14 points for the Tigers on the offensive end of the floor.

"I thought we did a good job of executing on both ends of the floor in the second half," said TSU head coach Mike Davis. "Our goal moving forward is to be the best basketball team that we can be when the SWAC Tournament starts next month."
