Golden Hurricane cages Jackson State, 86-66

TULSA — Freshman guard James Woodard totaled game-highs of 27 points and 11 rebounds in leading Tulsa to an 86-66 victory over a pesky Jackson State team in front of 4,134 fans at the Donald W. Reynolds Center.

Senior Scottie Haralson added 16 points and fellow freshman Shaquille Harrison scored 12 points for the Hurricane. Jackson State (0-2) was led by Kelsey Howard with 25 points and 23 from Christian Williams. The Hurricane out-rebounded the Tigers 42-31 for the game, and shot nearly 30-percent better from the field in the second half at 63-percent and ended the game at 48-percent.

In two home games for the Hurricane, Woodard has totaled 55 points as he tallied 28 points in the season opener against LSU-Shreveport on Nov. 11.

After leading by just five points at halftime and two points with just under 11 minutes to play, the Hurricane finished out the game by running off 33 points to JSU's 15 points in the final 10:36.

"It was a great team win and we just have to grind and get better," said Tulsa Head Coach Danny Manning.

Tulsa came out of the locker room at halftime and sprinted to a 9-0 run and a 44-30 lead before the Tigers were able to get their first basket at the 16:39 mark. Just like in the first half, Jackson State cut into Tulsa's double-digit lead and got as close as two points at 53-51 with 10:49 left on the game clock.

The Hurricane once again held off the Tigers and gradually built the lead back to double-digits at 68-58 with 5:55 left in the contest. Haralson's two-point basket and three-pointer and a Kauri Black layup put the Hurricane advantage up to 17 points at 75-58 with 4:05 left on the game clock.

Tulsa ran out to a 12-point lead in the first six minutes of the game as Woodard scored seven of Tulsa's first 14 points as the Hurricane marched out to a 14-2 lead. The Hurricane went ahead 22-5 on a Shaquille Harrison layup at the 10-minute mark.
