Worth a look

If you can tear yourself away from the Iron Bowl festivities, it might be worth looking into JSU's basketball game with VMI Saturday afternoon.

The Keydets lead the country in scoring and have at least five players averaging in double figures.

It'll make for an interesting contrast to the defensive mindset JSU coach James Green has impressed upon his players.

The two teams played a couple years ago in a tournament at William & Mary and JSU won 87-85. That game started out a shootout, with JSU leading 58-55 at halftime, but settled down in the second half with the teams combining for 59 points.

Dorien Brown basket in the paint with 18 seconds left put JSU 86-85 and Courtney Bradley's free throw at 0:05 brought the final margin.

Twins Chavis and Travis Holmes had 18 and 16, respectively, for VMI in that game -- and they're back. Travis Holmes missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
