ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Preston Blackman scored 20 points Saturday night to lead Savannah State to a 64-49 win over South Carolina State in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game.

Savannah State took a 32-21 lead at halftime, then coasted to the 15-point victory. Besides Blackman, Rashad Hassan came off the bench to score in double figures with 17 points. Largely on his effort, Savannah outscored the Bulldogs 29-7 in bench scoring.
