Southern women seek their 1st win against Marshall

The Southern women’s basketball team will take another shot at scoring its first victory of the season at 11 a.m. Sunday when it faces Marshall in the A&M Classic in College Station, Texas.

The Jaguars (0-4) allowed host Texas A&M to shoot 60 percent in the second half during an 88-48 loss Friday night. The Aggies outrebounded Southern 52-20 for the game; Kendra Coleman had 11 points but was the only Jaguar to reach double figures.

That defeat dropped Southern into the consolation side of the four-team tournament, drawing a matchup with Marshall, which fell 67-46 to Marquette on Friday. The Thundering Herd (2-2) allowed Marquette to score 20 second-chance points.

Southern’s next action will come next weekend in Toledo, Ohio, for another four-team tournament. The Jaguars open against St. Bonaventure on Saturday, then would face Toledo or SIU-Edwardsville on Sunday.
