Recap: NC A&T vs. Jacksonville St

Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Tarvin Gaines scored 17 points to lead the Jacksonville State Gamecocks to a 54-50 victory over the North Carolina A&T Aggies in the Visitors Bracket of the Global Sports Classic at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Darion Rackley scored 14 points for JSU (5-2) while Ronnie Boggs contributed nine points and seven rebounds.

Jean Louisme and Adrian Powell both tallied 11 points for NC A&T (2-5). DaMetrius Upchurch had a strong performance for the Aggies with nine points and nine rebounds.

Neither side could get much going on the offensive end in the opening period, as the Gamecocks took a narrow 17-16 lead into the intermission after a very low-scoring 20 minutes. JSU scored 12 points off of turnovers to hold the slight edge on the scoreboard at the break.

The Aggies heated up after the break to knock down 9-of-17 attempts from the field and 9-of-11 at the charity stripe. Despite making just 28.6 percent of its field goal attempts in the second half, JSU stayed close by netting 4- of-11 attempts from three-point range and 12-of-13 at the free throw line.

NC A&T overcame an early seven-point deficit in the second half, and the teams went back and forth in the closing minutes. Trailing by one point with 1:16 remaining, Louisme put the Aggies ahead with a clutch three-pointer. Rackley evened the score at 45 with a pair of free throws on the Gamecocks' next possession. Gaines then blocked Lamont Middleton's potential go-ahead jumper, but Boggs missed a dunk at the end of regulation, which sent the game into overtime.

Brian Williams made four free throws in the final minute of the extra session to lift JSU to the four-point win.

Three-point shooting played a big factor as NC A&T made just 2-of-11 from beyond the arc while JSU connected on 7-of-19 attempts from long range.
