Southern wins its sixth straight by beating Alabama A&M 73-52

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Alabama A&M brought the leading scorer in the Southwestern Athletic Conference into the F.G. Clark Activity Center on Monday night.

But Southern neutralized Ladarius Tabb, not only holding him to eight points, 13 below his season average, but also by having four Jaguars outscore him.

Adrian Rodgers scored a game-high 20 points, Christopher Hyder had 14 and Rashad Andrews and Trelun Banks had 10 each as Southern beat the Bulldogs 73-52.

“We had individuals step up against him, but it was all about team defense,” Southern coach Roman Banks said. “I don’t think you can ever stop him, but I thought we controlled him and got him out of his rhythm.”

Tabb made 3-of-9 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers, playing just 20 minutes because of foul trouble and the lopsided margin. Quinterian McConico came off the bench to lead AAMU with 12 points, and Nicholas West scored 10.
