//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js The win was Jackson State’s first in the postseason since 1993. That team, led by Lindsey Hunter, beat UConn 90-88 before falling to Southwest Missouri State. JSU improved to 20-14 on the season. They now wait to see who they’ll play in the second round, as there is no set bracket for the game.
