BTB HD: Tech defeats Jackson State 72-61 for sixth win in a row


JACKSON, Miss. - Alex Hamilton came up big on offense with a game-high 24 points and on defense with three steals to lead Louisiana Tech to its sixth straight win, a 72-61 victory over Jackson State on Sunday night inside the Lee E. Williams AAC.

Jackson State (2-6) pulled to within three points four minutes into the second half, but LA Tech (6-1) pulled away by using a 16-0 run and holding the Tigers scoreless for almost eight minutes of action.

"We were able to sweat one out late versus a very solid, hard-nosed Jackson State team who has had a very good year thus far," said head coach Michael White. "Additionally, they are even better at home.

"I thought we rebounded the ball really well. We defended [Julysses] Nobles well enough to give ourselves a chance. I thought we had some guys come off the bench and really help us in areas. We have been on the road for a while and are really looking forward to getting back in the TAC."

The game started with a super quick bucket by the `Dogs. Michale Kyser tipped the ball forward to Chris Anderson who dished it to a driving Raheem Appleby for the two-handed slam.

However, JSU managed to keep the game at a slow, low-scoring pace early in the contest with its 2-3 zone.
