PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas — Tre Hagood scored 22 points and Prairie View topped Mississippi Valley State 84-74 on Saturday.
Prairie View (10-16, 8-5 Southwestern) dominated most of the first half. Jaryn Johnson's 3-pointer gave the Panthers a nine-point lead 6 ½ minutes in. The lead grew to 20 on Jacoby Green's trey with 4:21 until halftime, but MVSU chipped away and reduced the deficit to 11, 47-36, at intermission.
MVSU clawed back to tie at 54 on Jeffrey Simmons' layup with 13:03 left, and the and-one lifted the Delta Devils to their only lead of the day. Hagood's jumper on the next possession gave Prairie View the lead back — for good.
