Southern women’s win streak ends at five in 85-74 loss to Alcorn State

LORMAN, Mississippi — The Southern women had won five consecutive games to regain control of their fate in the Southwestern Athletic Conference race.

But on Saturday, the winning streak came to an end and the Jaguars title hopes diminished in an 85-74 loss to Alcorn State in the Davey L. Whitney Complex.
Southern couldn’t stop the Lady Braves from getting to the basket, never got into a rhythm offensively and couldn’t overcome foul trouble.

As a result the Jaguars (15-10, 12-4) are two games behind first-place Texas Southern, which comes to the F.G. Clark Activity on Thursday for the second-to-last game of the regular season.
Alcorn, which lost to Southern 66-57 four weeks ago, is 6-10 and 9-17 after winning for the fifth time in six games.

“We didn’t have any intensity whatsoever from start to finish,” said forward Briana Green, whose performance mirrored that of the team as she scored 21 of her 25 points during a frenzied fourth-quarter attempt to overcome an 18-point deficit.
