BATON ROUGE, La — Southern Men’s Basketball defeated Grambling State 81-73 to close out an undefeated three-game stretch at the F. G. Clark Activity Center.

This victory marks their 5th straight win to open up SWAC play and the Jaguars stand alone atop the conference standings. SU Head Coach Sean Woods intends to keep the same energy moving forward.

“We ain’t the hunted, we’re the hunters and it’s still hunting season.” Woods said.

Brion Whitley scored a game high 32 points and served as a consistent offensive force when points were hard to come by. P.J. Byrd added 18 points and 8 assists, the most of any player in the contest.

Down the stretch, Southern relied on the scoring of senior Isaiah Rollins and energy of Festus Ndumanya.

Up next: on the road at Arkansas-Pine Bluff 5:30pm 1/21 Saturday.
