Mobile, AL (Sports Network) - Augustine Rubit registered a double-double with game highs of 19 points and 10 rebounds as he helped lead the South Alabama Jaguars to a 77-62 win over the Trojans of Arkansas-Little Rock in Sun Belt Conference action at the Mitchell Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Jaguars (6-5, 3-0 Sun Belt) were Barrington Stevens with 17 points, Mychal Ammons 15 and Xavier Roberson with 13 points in the team's second straight win.

The Trojans (8-6, 2-1) were paced by John Gillon who came off the bench to record 14 points, while Kemy Osse and Will Neighbour contributed 11 points apiece as the team bowed for the second straight time and the third in the last four outings.

UALR opened the meeting on a 7-1 run, but the squad ended up shooting just 2- of-7 from behind the 3-point line and 6-of-11 at the charity stripe over the first 20 minutes of action, which allowed USA to take a 39-30 advantage at the break.
