Southern women, men take win streaks into Mississippi Valley

GREENWOOD, Mississippi — The Southern women’s and men’s teams are both among the hottest basketball teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

The women won their fourth consecutive game when they started a two-game road trip with a 78-61 victory at Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Saturday. A short time later, the men followed them on to the court at the H.O. Clemmons Arena and won their third consecutive game 67-57.

Both Jaguars teams will seek a repeat performance when they play Mississippi Valley State on Monday at the Leflore County Civic Center.

The Southern women (4-1 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference and 7-7 overall) and their Delta Devils counterparts (1-3, 3-11) meet at 5:30 p.m.

The women took control in the second quarter against UAPB and never relinquished the lead, though it wasn’t a blemish-free performance.
