JACKSONVILLE, Ala. -- Malcolm Drumwright's jumper with nearly three minutes to play proved to be the game winner as Jacksonville State held off Howard for a 62-60 victory on Monday night.
Drumwright tied the game at 59-59, but RJ Cole stole the ball, drew a foul and hit the first of two free throws to give the Bison the lead, 60-59 with 3:03 left. Drumwright hit again with 2:45 left to make it 61-60 and added a free throw about a minute later to set the final score.
