After a rough first half of the season, Savannah State has caught a break.
They are currently ranked first in the MEAC, riding a four game winning streak.
Monday night at Tiger Arena, they welcomed another conference rival, Florida A&M.
The Rattlers' Jamie Adams went coast to coast, driving in the paint for the layup to knot the score at 2-2.
Then the Tiger's Terel Hall went around the left side, off the backboard for the bucket.
At the other end, FAMU came back as Trey Kellum took the pass and drains the jumper off the wing to tie the game at six.
Still in the first half, Richmond Hill native Jerimian Hill hit one deep from downtown. He had a pair of back-to-back buckets to help the Tigers stat in it.
The Tigers had to fight for this one, but they win it 79-68 over FAMU to stay undefeated in the MEAC.
