MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Fred Sturdivant scored 22 points with 13 rebounds and Texas Southern won its 10th straight game 70-50 over Alabama State Monday night in Southwestern Athletic Conference action.
The double-double was Sturdivant's 11th and his third in his past four games. The senior was 11-of-15 shooting and blocked six shots. He was joined in double figures by Aaron Clayborn (12 points), Lawrence Johnson-Danner (12) and Ray Penn (10) for the Tigers (15-14, 14-2).
Texas Southern's Omar Strong scored just two points and was 0 for 9 from 3-point range, snapping his streak of consecutive games with at least one trey at 60 -- it was the longest active streak in the NCAA.
The Tigers led 19-4 on Johnson-Danner's four-point play just under 7 minutes in and cruised to a 36-26 halftime edge.
Alabama State (9-20, 7-9) tied it 36-36 with 15:15 left, but the Tigers responded with a 21-3 run.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
