    HOUSTON -- Terrence Joyner and Paul Crosby scored five points each in overtime as Mississippi Valley State defeated Texas Southern 77-69 on Monday night.

    In a first-place Southwestern Athletic Conference showdown, Joyner led the Delta Devils (8-11, 7-0) with 18 points, and Brent Arrington added 17. Crosby had 15 points and 12 rebounds.

    Omar Strong scored 16 points and Madarious Gibbs 14 for the Tigers (6-13, 5-2), who dropped into third place in the SWAC standings, a half-game behind Southern, which beat Alabama State on Monday.

    Gibbs' driving layup at the regulation buzzer tied the score at 63-all.

    In overtime, Joyner provided the first score with a 3-pointer, and Crosby had a three-point play to give the Delta Devils a 71-65 lead with 2:06 remaining. Joyner added a jumper, and Mississippi Valley State protected the lead at the free-throw line.
