    South Carolina St 56, Norfolk State 44

    NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Thurman Zimmerman scored 14 points and South Carolina State got lots of help from its reserves in a 56-44 win over Norfolk State on Monday night.

    The Bulldogs (6-13, 4-5 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) got 22 points from their bench -- the Spartans got just nine-- and bounced from a 21-20 halftime deficit.

    Tony Murphy scored 17 points for the Spartans (6-13, 5-4), who led 32-25 with 14:32 left after a layup and free throw by Al'Davon Thomas. But South Carolina State pulled even at 39 on a basket by Julius Carter with 8:12 to play, and the Bulldogs pulled away.

    Brian Mason added 13 for South Carolina State.
