BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Jameel Grace made 4 of 5 3-pointers and finished with 24 points as Southern University pulled away to beat Alabama State 58-49 Saturday.

Malcolm Miller added 13 points and seven assists to help Southern (18-8, 12-2) stay undefeated at home.

Ahead 39-38 with 10:54 left to play, Southern scored seven unanswered points, capped by Grace's three-point play to make it 46-38 with 6:43 remaining.

Denzell McDaniel's 3-pointer cut Alabama State's deficit to 53-49 with 3:13 to play, but that was the closest the Hornets would get as they went scoreless the rest of the way.
