Southern Miss Closes Week on Road at LA Tech
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The Southern Miss women’s basketball team (13-11, 5-6) has its final road game of the week tomorrow afternoon in Ruston, LA. against LA Tech (16-10, 7-6) at 2:30 p.m.
The Lady Techsters will face the Lady Eagles in its last home game of the season after losing to Charlotte 64-51 earlier in the week at the Thomas Assembly Center. Though Southern Miss is riding a two game win streak in the LA Tech series, the Lady Eagles have not secured a victory in Ruston since a 79-77 OT win in Jan. of 2015.
Though she played some minutes in the last outing against North Texas, Southern Miss will be without point guard Shonte Hailes. Jayla King led the Lady Eagles in scoring when the Lady Eagles topped the Lady Techsters 65-50 earlier in the season and the team will look to her to have a big game if Southern Miss is to keep its win streak against LA Tech alive.
Fans can watch the games on CUSA.TV or listen to Josh West on the broadcast via The Score 1400 AM or the Southern Miss Game Day App starting 30 minutes before tipoff.
