The University of South Alabama women's basketball team will host Southern Mississippi Wednesday night at the Mitchell Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
South Alabama will be led by Antoinette Lewis who is averaging 18 point and 13 rebounds per contest. Lewis is also averaging five blocks per match. She's followed by Shaforia Kines with seven assists per game and Christen Carter who's averaging three steals per contest.
Shonte Hailes will lead the charge for Southern Mississippi. Hailes is averaging 12.5 points and 11 assists person contest. Kelsey Jones is averaging 9.5 rebounds for the group.
The two programs have met 31 previous times with the Golden Eagles holding a 19-12 series advantage. They have won six of the last 10 meetings in the series. However, South Alabama snapped a four-game skid with a 78-57 road win a year ago.
"I'm pleased with the pace that we're playing at. We've got an inside-outside type of game going right now with Antoinette Lewis in the post and our perimeter players who can shoot the ball and score," said USA head coach Terry Fowler. "We had four players finish in double figures the other night against Spring Hill and we feel like we have players who are capable of doing that every game. We need to limit our turnovers and we have to improve our free-throw shooting. We have to get better in those two areas."
