    HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Preston Blackmon scored a career-high 26 points and Joshua Montgomery had 22 to lead Savannah State past Southeastern Louisiana 74-65 on Wednesday, snapping the Tigers' 13-game losing streak.

    After the Lions scored the first basket in the Hardwood Club Holiday Tournament, Savannah State (2-13) grabbed the lead with an 18-4 run and never relinquished it despite a late threat from Southeastern Louisiana.

    With the Tigers leading by 16 in the second half, the Lions (5-5) used a 12-0 run to close to 51-47. Blackmon hit a 3-pointer and a jumper to end that spurt, but with 5:36 to go, David Ndoumba scored eight straight points to get Southeastern Louisiana within 68-65 with 1:30 left.

    Savannah State then hit 6 of 6 free throws to win for the first time since the season opener, a 61-33 victory over Brewton Parker on Nov. 12.

    Ndoumba led the Lions with 20 points.
