Southern Miss to Recognize Two Seniors on Senior Day

Feb. 24, 2018

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The Southern Miss women’s basketball team will recognize two seniors, Jayla King and Molly Brown, in tomorrow’s 2 p.m. Senior Day contest against UTEP.

King, from Pensacola, Fla. spent three seasons with the Lady Eagles after transferring from USF. The guard/forward will leave Hattiesburg having appeared in over 90 games, starting 85 of them. That puts her seventh and ninth all-time for each category, respectively. She’s grabbed the fifth most offensive boards, eighth most defensive rebounds and the seventh most total rebounds of any Southern Miss women’s basketball player. Her 213 made free throws mark her at sixth most and she only needs 30 more points to become the Lady Eagles’ 27th player to hit 1,000 career points.

Brown, a Douglasville, Ga. native, came to Southern Miss by way of South Georgia Technical College. She appeared in over 29 games in two seasons, getting two starting nods. She’s had the most multi three-point games of anyone on the squad this year and has tied or surpassed her career-high three times this season. This year, the guard has committed the least amount of fouls of any player who sees the court, on average, for more than 10 minutes a game.

The Lady Eagles and Miners ride into the game with a 5-8 record in conference and positioned in a three way tie with FAU for ninth. With only three C-USA games to play, including Sunday’s game, every game determines seeding for next week’s conference tournament.

The game will feature the Hattiesburg Fire Department facing off against the Hattiesburg Police Department in a game of hoops at halftime and tickets are just 4 dollars for public officials and first responders. 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.
