There was no lack of excitement Saturday as FAMU picked up its fourth straight win with a clutch three-pointer from Johnny Brown with 11 seconds remaining to lift FAMU past Alcorn State 70-68 at the Al Lawson Center.

The Rattlers went into the half with an eight-point deficit to the Braves and found themselves down 14 after allowing an 11-5 run to begin the second half.

The Rattlers continued to go back and forth with the Braves, making it a 10-point game with 4:49 left.

The Rattlers would finish the half with an incredible 17-5 run while making big shot after big shot, but none bigger than the go-ahead three from Brown with 11 seconds left to give the Rattlers the lead to cap the comeback.

Brown finished with 10 points.

The Rattlers had their best shooting performance of the season, shooting 51% from the field and 52.9% from three.
