Before Reese' foul shots, Jackson State's Julian Daughtry made three free throws, also at the 10.7 second mark, to pull the Tigers within 65-62. Jackson State got the ball again after Torrey Mayo threw the ball out of bounds on the inbound play.
But Reese, who finished with 14 points for the Jaguars (10-14, 6-5 Southwestern Athletic Conference), was fouled on a moving screen during the Tigers' ensuing inbound play and went straight to the foul line to make it a five-point game with the free throws.
Jackson State (10-14, 7-4) led most of the game, though never by more than six. Southern led by no more than three until Chris Thomas scored four straight points to make it 61-57. Thomas added 11 points for the Jaguars.
