AR-Pine Bluff Golden Lions

The Lions opened the year on a rough 5-10 run, but then beat Texas Southern, Florida A&M, Bethune-Cookman, Grambling and MS Valley State in the next six games. AR-Pine Bluff would then lose to Prairie View, Alcorn State and Jackson State before another win over Alabama State.

Matched up against Alabama State on Saturday, the Golden Lions held a slim lead 41-39 by halftime. AR-Pine Bluff held the Hornets back on a 39-35 run from there and took the win 80-74 in the end. Rashad Williams came off the bench to post 33 points with six rebounds.

Alabama A&M Bulldogs

Over on the Bulldogs’ side, they only won three of their first 20 games over Tennessee State, AR-Pine Bluff and MS Valley State. Alabama A&M has gone 4-1 since then with wins over Florida A&M, Bethune-Cookman, Grambling and MS Valley State (with a loss to Southern).

Over the weekend versus MS Valley State, the Bulldogs were able to keep the Delta Devils winless. Alabama A&M came into the second half with a two-point lead then hit a 49-29 run for a win 80-57. Lorenzo Downey was the team’s top scorer on 13 points with seven boards.


I’ll stick with Alabama A&M. Granted, there’s not a lot to get excited about in this one but it should be a competitive game. The Bulldogs shot a solid 49 percent from the field against a struggling MS Valley State team in their last game, adding 34 rebounds and 28 points off 18 turnovers. It was a nice bounce-back on the scoreboard after a combined 122 points in their previous two games.

These teams last saw each other on January 6 in a 63-62 road win for the Bulldogs. Alabama A&M shot 50 percent in that one with a 44-22 rebounding advantage but also coughed up 26 turnovers that led to 30 AR-Pine Bluff points. The Bulldogs will need to control the ball much better here.
