    MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Ivory White scored 21 points and Phillip Crawford added 17 as Alabama State rallied to beat Texas Southern in overtime on Monday night, snapping a three-game losing streak.

    Texas Southern entered halftime leading 32-18 and pushed that lead to 48-30 behind five straight points from Fred Sturdivant. However, Alabama State (8-13, 5-4 Southwest Athletic Conference) used a 22-6 run over the final 9 minutes to cut the deficit to 54-52. White's layup with 3 seconds left sent the game into overtime.

    Crawford had 11 during the run and White had eight as the Hornets outscored Texas Southern 36-22 in the second half.

    Alabama State controlled overtime, making the first three baskets and sinking four free throws in the final 20 seconds to seal the victory.

    Texas Southern (7-14, 6-3) took seven 3-pointers in overtime, connecting on just one.

    Sturdivant led the Tigers with 16 points and seven rebounds.
