PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP)—Jazz Williams of Southern University and William Byrd of Arkansas-Pine Bluff each scored 20 points in a 70-60 win Saturday night by Southern.

The difference between the two teams was reflected in the numbers in the 3-point column and in free throws.

Williams reflected his team’s effort in that category by making 6-of-9 from long distance, while the Jaguars (6-10, 4-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference) as a team made 12-of-19. UAPB went 5-of-22 from beyond the arc.
