CHALK TALK This matchup pits the top two teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. A win by UAPB would pull it within a game of first place. The teams will meet again on March 7 in Jackson, Miss. ... Jackson State leads the league in rebounding (42.6 rebounds/game) and scoring defense (58.4 points/game), while UAPB is third in rebounding (40.9 rebounds/game) and first in scoring (76.5 points/game). ... The current four-game winning streak the Golden Lions are on is a season-high. Jackson State, though, has won its last 10 games.
