What to Know
After 11 games on the road, the Jackson State Tigers are heading back home. The Tigers and the Alcorn State Braves will face off in an SWAC battle at 8:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Williams Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
Jackson State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap three weeks ago as they fell 70-65 to the Drake Bulldogs. Despite the loss, Jackson State got a solid performance out of forward Jayveous McKinnis, who almost dropped a triple-double on 19 points, ten boards, and nine blocks.
Meanwhile, Alcorn State got maybe a little too into the holiday spirit, gifting the Oklahoma Sooners an easy 72-48 win. Alcorn State was surely aware of their 26.5-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result. One thing holding Alcorn State back was the mediocre play of guard Byron Joshua, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 4-for-11 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
The Tigers are now 2-9 while the Braves sit at 1-11. Jackson State is 2-6 after losses this season, Alcorn State 1-9.
