Despite a game high 27 points from Samkelo Cele, Southern falls to Grambling 72-69
Seeking revenge for an early January loss to Southern, Grambling was determined to not lot the hardwood Bayou Classic fall into the wrong hands. The Tigers started the game on a 19-0 run and led by 7 at the half.
But in the second, thanks to a game high 27 points from Samkelo Cele, Southern would have a chance to tie in the closing seconds but missed a chance to force overtime. Grambling gets a big road and SWAC victory 72-69.
