Cornelius Hester scored 24 points, most of which came off six 3-pointers, as Alabama A&M defeated Southern University 64-45 on Monday night.
The Bulldogs (12-11, 9-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference) led 23-19 at halftime, but stretched their advantage to double digits on a 10-0 run fueled by Casey Cantey early in the second half.

The Jaguars (4-23, 3-12) worked the deficit back into single digits once — on Marceis Davis' 3-pointer with 10:17 left — but Cantey answered with a jumper 41 seconds later. Southern lost its eighth in a row, with nobody scoring in double figures.
