Freshman forward Raven White led Southern with 17 points and six rebounds. Amani McWain added 14 points and five boards. Jaden Towner chipped in 13 points and also had five rebounds.

Southern was able to hold on to the lead, despite many turnovers in the fourth quarter, ending up with 24 total in the game.

“We’re going to make some adjustments on the offensive end and I’m sure they are too,” said head coach Carlos Funchess. Defensively, you still want to be solid. Offensively, you want to take advantage of your mismatches. So, that’s what we’re going to try to do."

The Lady Jags have now won four in a row against the Lady Braves.
