Deeper Southern men will try to extend their winning streak Monday against Alabama A&M on ESPNU

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Now that Southern has its full complement of players, men’s basketball coach Roman Banks has the most options he has had since the start of Southwestern Athletic Conference play.

With guard Trelun Banks and center D’Adrian Allen having returned from ankle injuries, the Jaguars expect to have everyone available for a conference game for the first time this season when they meet Alabama A&M at 6 p.m. Monday in the F.G. Clark Activity Center. The game will air on ESPNU.

Trelun Banks returned from a two-game absence to start, play 38 minutes and score a team-high 21 points in Saturday’s 73-69 home victory against Alabama State. Allen wasn’t as far along in his recuperation, but he still managed to come off the bench and contribute three points and two rebounds in 12 minutes.

Coach Banks used 10 players in the game, more than he had used in any of the previous SWAC games for Southern (13-7, 5-2).
