With Trelun Banks and D’Adrian Allen back in the fold, Southern men beat Alabama State 73-69 for their fifth straight win

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Southern got a boost from the return of injured starters Trelun Banks and D’Adrian Allen.

And those two got a helping hand from Jared Sam as the Jaguars needed all hands on deck to hold off Alabama State 73-69 on Saturday night in the F.G. Clark Activity Center.

Banks returned from a two-game absence with a sprained ankle to start, play 38 minutes and score 21 points. Allen returned from a six-game absence with a sprained ankle to come off the bench and get three points and two rebounds in 12 minutes.

“(The ankle) felt pretty good,” said Banks, who made 7 of 12 shots, including 4 of 8 3-pointers. “I didn’t think about it very much. Once I started getting up and down the court, the adrenaline started pumping and it really wasn’t on my mind.”
