  • In their last outing, the Lady Bisons dropped a close affair with North Florida 78-70 on the road. Sophomore Riley Northway paced the Purple and Gold with 20 points, while senior Chandler Cooper and junior Alex Banks each added 16.
  • In the first game of the season, Lipscomb lost to Loyola (MD) 57-52 at home. In the loss, Southern set a program NCAA-era record for rebounds in a single game with 20. She also added 15 points.
  • For her performance in the opening week, Southern was named the Co-Atlantic Sun Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for the second time in her career. She was also named the A-Sun Player of the Week after the second week of action.
  • Southern is ranked first in the A-Sun and 41st in the nation in points per game with a mark of 19.0. Her 9.8 rebounds per contest ranks third in the conference and 36th in the nation.
  • Sophomore Loren Cagle ranks 5th in the nation and first in the A-Sun in assists with a 7.4 per game mark.
