HOUSTON (AP) - Devocio Butler and Eden Ewing each scored 17 points and Texas Southern rallied to beat Alabama A&M 84-74 on Monday night.

Tyrik Armstrong and John Jones each scored 13 and Shawn Olden II 10 for the Tigers.

Texas Southern (11-11, 6-3 Southwestern Athletic Conference) lead 44-43 at halftime before the Bulldogs started the second half with a 16-6 run and led 59-50. The Tigers countered with 17-6 run and took the lead for good on Armstrong's jumper with 8:37 left. Justin Hopkins hit a jumper a little more than three minutes later and Texas Southern led 77-67 with 5:17 to go. Alabama A&M (4-19, 3-6) never got closer than six the rest of the way.

Brandon Houston led the Bulldogs with 15 points, Gerron Scissum 14, Evan Wiley 12 and Brandon Wright 10.

Alabama A&M has yet to win a true road game this season in 13 attempts. The Bulldogs' one win away from home came against Tulane in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
