HOUSTON (AP) Montrael Scott had 16 points, including a pair of free throws with four seconds left, and nine rebounds to help Prairie View beat Texas Southern 58-55 on Saturday night.

Tre Hagood scored 14 points and grabbed seven boards for Prairie View (7-16, 5-5 Southwestern) while Reggis Onwukamuche added 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots.

Madarious Gibbs missed a layup on the other end, but Chris Thomas' putback made it 55-53 nine seconds later.

The teams traded a free throw apiece before Scott sealed it at the line.
