Prudhomme hits double-double again to score Southern's first win

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Shawn Prudhomme is nothing if not consistent.

For the second straight game, the Southern guard posted a double-double, except this time, his performance carried the Jaguars to its first win of the season.

Southern snapped its three-game losing streak Tuesday night, beating Tennessee Tech 80-68 in the team’s home opener at the F.G. Clark Activity Center.

“I was feeling good,” Prudhomme said. “I just like to come out with a lot of energy, and the guys on the team did a good job of getting me shots, and it’s just my job to knock them down."

By the final buzzer, Prudhomme posted 21 points, 10 rebounds and a pair of steals.

Prudhomme’s productive showing was all the more crucial to Southern’s success, considering Tre’lun Banks was battling small virus in his system.

Southern coach Roman Banks was happy his son was able to suit up at all against the Golden Eagles after sitting out practice for most of the week.
