The streak is over.
Grambling State, which hasn’t won a game over a Division I opponent in more than 700 days, snapped its record 45-game losing streak with a 95-80 win over Alcorn State Monday night.
Grambling State (2-18, 1-10 SWAC) beat a Division I opponent for the first time since Mar. 3, 2012, a
win over Alabama A&M.
The fans are storming the court at Hobdy Assembly Center, as Grambling State MBB has ended long losing streak against NCAA D-I opponents.

“It was well worth the wait just to see the kids so excited and so emotional getting their first win,” Grambling coach Joseph Price told the News-Star. “They played with the heart of a champion. I’ve been waiting for this win. I knew it was coming. I had a great feeling today that it was going to be today.”
A’Torri Shine led Grambling State with 19 points and Antwan Scott followed with 16 points and 13 assists in the win.
“It’s unbelievable, man,” Scott said. “I wanted to get this win so bad for coach Price. He’s like my second father. I’m so happy. I’m at a loss for words.”
