    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Ralfeal Golden hit two free throws with 35 seconds left to seal Alabama State's 69-68 victory over Jackson State on Monday night.

    Golden stole the Ball on Jackson State's next possession, but turned it over with 16 seconds left to give the Tigers another chance. But Jackson State fell short of scoring again before time expired.

    George Savage scored 16 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead the Hornets (3-7). Alexander Oliver added 14 points and Kevin Spicer had 13.

    The Hornets hit 50 percent of their first-half shots to take a 39-33 lead. They led by as many as 17 points with 11 minutes left, until the Tigers went on a 22-5 surge over the next 8 minutes.

    Antonio Williams-Parker tied the game at 66-all on a 3-pointer with 1:50 left. Charlie White tipped in a basket seconds later to give the Tigers their first lead since the opening minutes of the game.

    Williams-Parker led the Tigers (4-9) with 22 points. Hilton Tompkins and Dakari Wallace each added 11 points.
