MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Jeffery Middlebrooks and Tramaine Butler each scored 16 points and Alabama State routed Mississippi Valley State 90-63 on Monday.
Ivory White added 13 points for the Hornets (8-16, 5-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference), while teammates Tremaine Moorer and Robert Sanders each contributed 12. Alabama State enjoyed a 40-35 rebounding advantage as it won its second straight after a stretch in which it lost five of six.
The Delta Devils (9-15, 8-3) committed 22 turnovers, leading to 21 Alabama State points, and missed all nine of their 3-point attempts. They hardly looked like the same team that defeated Alabama State 74-70 on Jan. 10 in Itta Bena, Miss. D'Angelo Jackson had 28 points in that game; on Monday, the Hornets held him to three and he missed all six of his field-goal attempts.
Orlando Smith had 15 points to lead Mississippi Valley State and Falando Jones added 12.
