    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Jerrell Houston had 15 points to lead Tennessee State to a 55-46 victory over Samford Thursday night.

    The Tigers (6-9, 3-3 Ohio Valley Conference) trailed for much of the first half but rallied to lead 24-22 going into the intermission. The Bulldogs (7-8, 4-3 OVC) fought back in the second half, but Tennessee State took a 34-33 lead on a jump shot by Houston with 10:45 left to play and never let Samford get ahead again.

    Reiley Ervin was the only other double figure scorer for the Tigers with 10 points.

    Josh Bedwell led the Bulldogs with 16 points and nine rebounds. Travis Peterson added 14 more points.
