After an open date, Southern University will return to action this week with perhaps its biggest test of the season in the SWAC, playing a road game Saturday afternoon at Prairie View. Head coach Dawson Odums will field questions from sports journalists Tuesday around noon.

Southern head coach Dawson Odums met with sports journalists for the first time since SWAC Media Day and after the summer break. And for the first time in 14 years, Southern will be outfitted with a new look, as the Jags are now partnered with Under Armour.
Southern University introduced longtime assistant Carlos Funchess as the newest coach of the women's basketball team Thursday. He spent the past 13 seasons as an assistant and expects the winning ways to continue.
