GRAMBLING — It was a second-straight heartbreaker for the Tigers Monday night as Grambling State fell to Prairie View A&M 83-82 before a crowd of 1,716 at the Frederick C.

Grambling guard Antwan Scott’s layup attempt with two seconds remaining failed to fall in the basket as the Tigers fell to 1-14 overall and 0-6 in the SWAC while Prairie View moved to 5-12 and 3-2.

GSU fell to 6-11 overall and 3-3 in the SWAC while Prairie View is now 2-13 and 2-3.
Grambling’s Joanna Miller nailed a 3-pointer with 6:16 remaining to pull the Lady Tigers within two points of Prairie View at 59-57, but that would be the last shot from the field GSU would make the rest of the way.

One of these programs that I am very proud to have as part of our 4-H Club program is shooting sports.
