Alabama State Beats Grambling, Wins SWAC, NCAA Bid
Written by Jaime Aron, AP Sports Writer Sunday, 13 March 2011 08:45
When February began, Alabama State was a mess — just 6-16, never winning more than two games in a row.
Now the Hornets are headed to the NCAA tournament, and it's not even a fluke. Their 65-48 dismantling of Grambling in the Southwestern Athletic Conference title game on Saturday night caps a roll about as good as any team about to make the bracket.

Quanneisha Perry, Jerika Jenkins and Melanie Warner scored 13 points apiece and Hampton pulled away in the second half to beat Howard 61-42 on Saturday for a second consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship.
The top-seeded Lady Pirates (25-6) won their 13th straight game and earned a return trip to the NCAA tournament behind a suffocating defense that limited the Lady Bison (16-18) to 28 percent shooting.
