GRAMBLING, La. -- Grambling State ended a 32-game losing streak, dating back to 2011, with an 83-75 victory over Division II Central Baptist on Monday night.

It was Grambling's first win since March 3, 2011 against Alabama A&M, after finishing 0-28 last season. The win also stopped a 25-game non-conference losing skid, going back to 2010.

The game was delayed for nearly 70 minutes because the officials weren't there for the opening tip.

When the game finally started, the Tigers went on a 13-4 spurt and led 24-18 at the 8:33 mark. A'Torri Shine scored 19 in the first half for Grambling State.

Central Baptist, a NAIA team, kept battling back and trailed 38-36 at halftime. The Mustangs shot 65 percent in the first half.

But Grambling State pulled away in the second half, as Remond Brown's 3-pointer gave them a 61-50 lead with 7:54 remaining and the Tigers were never threatened again.
