Jamiya Neal has eight points in the first half as the Arizona State Sun Devils (0-1) are beating the Texas Southern Tigers (0-1), 28-20, at Desert Financial Arena in Tempe.

The Sun Devils shot 10-for-29 from the field in the first half, but struggled particularly from deep, going 1-for-7.

Jahmar Young Jr. has six points in 16 minutes to lead the way for the Tigers in a trailing effort. Shaqir O’Neal, son of Naismith Hall of Famer and former Phoenix Sun Shaquille O’Neal, has two points at the half for Texas Southern.
