STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - -

Malik Newman scored 15 points and Mississippi State closed on a 24-5 run and beat Tulane 69-59 on Saturday.
    
Newman was 3 of 9 from the field and made six free throws. Craig Sword had 14 points, and Gavin Ware added 12 points with nine rebounds for the Bulldogs (5-5), who snapped a two-game skid.
