DeMarcus Robinson and Jamel Waters scored 16 points apiece and Alabama State closed with a 14-2 run to beat Prairie View A&M 76-60 Saturday night.
Tony Armstrong added 12 points and 10 rebounds, both career highs, and Bobby Brown scored 11 for Alabama State (12-7, 6-2 Southwestern Athletic Conference), which recorded 19 assists on 25 field goals.
Prairie View's Demondre Chapman tied the game on a layup with 11:06 to play but a jumper and a layup by Terrance LeFlore sandwiched around a 3-pointer by Brown gave the Hornets a 56-49 lead just 1:21 later.
PVAMU (6-14, 4-4) was held to just three points - a Tre Hagood triple with 1:29 remaining - in the final 4 minutes of action while Alabama State went 3 of 5 from the field and 8 of 10 from the free throw line.
Chapman led the Panthers with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
