Tennessee State rallies to beat Jacksonville State 45-43

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Darreon Reddick scored 14 points as Tennessee State rallied in the second half to a 45-43 win over Jacksonville State on Saturday night.

Charles Tucker added 12 points and four rebounds for the Tigers (5-18, 2-6 Ohio Valley Conference). Demontez Loman had 11. The win came in spite of the team shooting a dismal 27.3 percent from the floor.

Jacksonville State was up 22-19 at the break and led by as many as 15 points early in the second period with the help of a pair of Darion Rackley 3-pointers. But the Gamecocks (9-15, 2-8) fell apart after that, scoring just four more points in the final 13 minutes as the Tigers closed in and took the lead, 39-38, on a 3-pointer by Reddick and finished with Tucker sinking 5 of 8 from the line for the win.

Rackley led the Gamecocks with 16 points.
