JACKSON, Miss. — The Lady Tigers overcame a slow start on the road as Grambling State University went on to capture a 79-58 win at Jackson State University Saturday at the Lee E. Williams Athletic and Assembly Center.
The win moved GSU to 8-10 overall and 5-2 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Trailing 38-35 at the half, Grambling picked up its pace in the second half, with freshman guard Jazmin Boyd putting up 12 points after intermission with fellow frosh Shakyla Hill adding nine points following the break.
Usually “coachspeak” is all about taking things “one game at a time.”
But coming off a bye week with another looming three weeks away, Louisiana Tech football Skip Holtz has a unique form of double vision as his rested Bulldogs get ready to play host to North Texas.
Tech’s 2014 Homecoming game is set for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff on Saturday at Joe Aillet Stadium against North Texas.
The Grambling State Tigers have been road warriors during the first six weeks of the 2014 football season.
But on Saturday the Tigers will finally play within the home confines of Eddie G. Robinson Stadium while riding a three-game win streak.
The Tigers will play host to Alcorn State at 2 p.m. Saturday. The game will be a battle of undefeated teams in Southwestern Athletic Conference play as GSU stands at 3-3 overall and 3-3 in the SWAC while Alcorn State is 4-2 and 3-0.
