HOUSTON- The Texas Southern Tigers won their fifth consecutive game on Wednesday with a doubleheader sweep of the visiting Huston-Tillotson Rams at MacGregor Park.
Texas Southern never trailed in either contest as the Tigers got plenty of offensive production from their lineup in games one and two.
