    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Trey Johnson scored a career-high 40 points to lead Jackson State to an 84-63 victory over Texas Southern on Monday night.

    Johnson followed a 23-point game two days earlier against Prairie View by surpassing his previous best of 38 set two weeks ago against Alabama A&M, and leading the Tigers (8-10, 4-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference) to their second straight win.

    Johnson has led Jackson State in scoring in all but two games this season.

    He had 23 points in the first half against Texas Southern (3-12, 1-4), which closed to within 39-38 early in the second half on a basket by Ike Count.

    Johnson scored eight of Jackson State's next 12 points to put the Tigers in control.

    Julius Young added 17 points and Ernest Hassel had 12 for Jackson State, which outrebounded Texas Southern 41-33 and forced 24 turnovers.

    Christopher Moore led Texas Southern with 13 points, and Justin Wilson added 11.
