Southern women expecting more of a challenge from Mississippi Valley State

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- The last time the Southern and Mississippi Valley State women met, the Jaguars forced 41 turnovers and rolled to a 99-36 victory.

That was four weeks ago, and Southern isn’t expecting it to be as easy when the teams meet again at 5 p.m. Monday in the F.G. Clark Activity Center.

“Everybody comes in here excited to play,” Jaguars coach Sandy Pugh said. “People love to come to Baton Rouge. People love to play at F.G. Clark. It’s a great place to play. They show up with that intensity and fire.”

Southern is 9-3 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference and 12-9 overall. The Lady Delta Devils are 1-11 and 3-19.

The Jaguars are in third place in the SWAC, one game behind Alabama State and 1½ games behind Texas Southern.
