PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas -- Dennis Jones scored a career-high 23 points with three steals, Zachary Hamilton and Shaquille Preston scored 15 points apiece, and Prairie View beat Alabama State 80-74 on Saturday to sweep the season series.
Gary Blackston scored 14 points with eight rebounds and five assists and JD Wallace added 10 points with seven boards for the Panthers (12-17, 9-6 Southwestern Athletic Conference), who entered the game tied for third with Texas Southern.
The Hornets twice closed to within a point, but the Panthers found answers and led 62-52 after Hamilton's 3 capped an 8-0 run. Alabama State scored seven straight to close to 66-63, but Prairie View scored seven straight and led 73-63 on Hamilton's 3 with 1:58 to go and the Hornets got no closer than six from there.
Prairie View led 38-32 at halftime after four lead changes and four ties after shooting just 36.1 percent from the floor.
Mannion, who recently reclassified and is ESPN's No.11 overall player in the class of 2019, chose Arizona over Marquette.
He'll fit in with Sean Miller's plans for a faster tempo on offense.
