Specks sparks Jackson State in win at PVAMU

PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas -- For much of this season, guards Raeford Worsham, Chace Franklin and Paris Collins have received most of the attention for Jackson State.

It's usually one of those three that have big performances that lead the Tigers to victory.

A new face stepped into the equation on Monday night, though.

Guard Yettra Specks scored a career-high 23 points to lead JSU to an 80-66 road victory against Prairie View A&M at the William Nicks Building in Prairie View, Texas.

Specks scored 15 of his 23 points in the second half to help the Tigers earn a runaway win, which pushed them to 14-12 overall and 9-4 in the SWAC. Specks was 12 of 15 from the free-throw line, which should be encouraging for a JSU team that typically struggles from the charity stripe.

The Tigers were 1-5 in regular season games played in Texas under coach Wayne Brent before this triumph.
