JACKSON, Miss. -- Jordan Berry hit a 3-pointer with under four minutes to play and Jackson State made it stand up for a 60-59 win over Mississippi Valley State in a Southwestern Athletic Conference battle Saturday night.
Jackson State entered the game tied with Alabama State for the No. 6 seed into the conference tournament, but the Hornets lost, 80-74 to Prairie View, leaving the Tigers alone in sixth place with two games left to play.
Berry's 3 gave Jackson State a 60-55 lead with 3:53 left to play, Jordan Evans hit a jumper and Gemaal Davis scored at the basket to get the Delta Devils within one with 2:16 left, but neither team scored again.
Evans finished with 20 points and Dante Scott added another 18 for Mississippi Valley State (3-26, 3-13).
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.
