NORMAL, Al. -- Jourdan DeMuynck scored 17 points to lead four players in double figures as Prairie View defeated Alabama State in a Southwestern Athletic Conference game on Saturday night.
Trailing 29-24 at the break, the Panthers outscored the Hornets 41-27 in the second half, shooting 48 percent from the field (12 of25) to the Hornets' 38.2 percent (11 of 28) and hitting 70.6 percent from the foul line (12 of 17) to the Hornet's 33.3 percent (2 of 6).
Alabama State committed 22 turnovers against Prairie View's nine.
After a season that saw his shooting numbers slip, should Nigel Hayes return for his senior year at Wisconsin or take the gamble to put him name in this year's NBA draft?
