    GARLAND, Texas -- Donald Qualls scored 35 points and sixth-seeded Grambling State rallied to beat No. 2 seed Jackson State 81-75 in overtime Friday in the Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament semifinals.

    Lance Feurtado added 18 points for Grambling State (12-20), which will take a season-high four-game winning streak into Saturday's final against fourth-seeded Alabama State.

    Grant Maxey had 32 points and 13 rebounds for Jackson State (17-15), which last year as the No. 1 seed lost to Grambling State in the first round of the SWAC tournament. Tyrone Hanson added 13 points.

    Grambling State trailed 58-47 with 5:42 left in regulation before sending the game into overtime on YonDarius Johnson's layup at the buzzer. Grambling State took the lead for good on a free throw by Qualls with 1:45 left and scored the game's final five points.
