TSU passes SWAC road tests

HOUSTON, Texas -- TSU forward Derrick Griffin, center, snags a rebound. The Tigers are the lone undefeated team in the SWAC.

There are still 13 games left before the SWAC tournament but everything Texas Southern hoped this season would become is coming to fruition.

The Tigers (6-11, 5-0) remain the lone undefeated team in the conference after a 71-65 win at Jackson and a 69-54 win at Grambling State.

They passed the first conference road tests of the year. The Jackson State game is the only conference game that TSU has won by single digits, however.

"It was a close game at the end," TSU head coach Mike Davis said. "We went up 20 and just kind of relaxed, turned the ball over, gave up too many turnovers at the end for points. That's one area we try not to give up a lot of points off turnovers. We were able to hang on for the win but it shouldn't have even been a close game if we would've just stayed focused and play."
