SU women head to another tournament

The Southern University women’s basketball team will play its second tournament in as many weekends when the Jaguars compete in the inaugural Glass City Tournament in Toledo, Ohio.

Southern (0-5) plays St. Bonaventure (3-4) at noon Saturday at Savage Arena. SIU-Edwardsville (3-3) faces host Toledo (4-1), which has won three straight, at 2:30 p.m.

The winners play at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, after the losers meet at noon.

The Jaguars, who lost both of their games at Texas A&M’s tournament last weekend, are in the middle of a six-game road trip and won’t play at home until Dec. 17, when Southeastern Louisiana visits.

Southern is led by junior guard Adrian Sanders (10.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game), junior guard Kendra Coleman (10.4 ppg) and senior forward Lechell Rush (7.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg).

Junior forward Doris Ortega (11.7 ppg, 7.3 rpg), junior guard CeCe Dixon (11.4 ppg), junior guard Ashley Zahn (9.0 ppg) and senior guard Alaina Walker (7.0 ppg, 6.0 rpg) pace St. Bonaventure, which has lost four straight road games after a 3-0 start.
