Jackson State toughs out win against MVSU

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Jackson State has never really concerned itself with winning pretty.

That was certainly the case against Mississippi Valley State, as Paris Collins played despite nursing a nagging shoulder injury and Chace Franklin sat out with a sling on his left arm.

Even with the wear and tear, the Tigers pulled out an 60-49 victory against the Delta Devils at the Lee E. Williams AAC on Saturday night.

"The biggest thing for us right now is just to survive and get through games," JSU coach Wayne Brent said. "You have Gator Worsham, who is banged up. We have Paris Collins, who has an (injured) shoulder. We played without Chace Franklin. Right now we're trying to survive, get through games and battle through them and be tough.

"The thing about it is we have tough guys and battle through injuries."
