Monday, November 11, 2013

MACON, Ga. – Posting a 25-point, 18-rebound, double-double in her first game in Purple and Gold, Lipscomb redshirt sophomore Ashley Southern has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Week as announced by the league on Monday.

The Tuscumbia, Ala. native went 10-of-19 from the field in 44 minutes of action in Sunday’s overtime loss to Morehead State. She also added a team-high four assists in the contest.

The award is the first weekly conference honor for Southern.

The Lady Bisons hit the road on Tuesday night for a nonconference tilt at UAB in Birmingham, Ala.
