Lyons late 3 lifts Southern past Texas Southern in OT, 77-76

HOUSTON (AP) — Tyrone Lyons drilled a pull-up 3-pointer with a second left to give Southern a 77-76 overtime win over Texas Southern in a Southwestern Athletic Conference opener. Gilliam hit a pair from the line with 21 seconds left to put Texas Southern in front by four, 75-71, but Lyons hit from deep with 11 seconds left to get the Jaguars within one. Gilliam drew a foul with six seconds left and pushed the lead to two, but his second attempt caromed directly to Lyons, who was unchallenged as he crossed mid-court and pulled up from just outside the arc to launch the game-winner.
