• Texas Southern guard Joyce Kennerson took over as the nation’s leading scorer at 26.6 points per game. She will try to lead the Lady Tigers to their fifth-straight non-conference win tonight at New Orleans., which would be the longest such streak for TSU since the 1981-82 season.

• Grambling State guard Shakyla Hill raised her steals per game average to 5.22, good for second-best in the country.

• Jackson State is one of the best ball-thieving units in America, as the Lady Tigers make 16.1 steals a night so far this season. This number is second-best in the country.

• Alcorn State has limited opponents to just 24.8 percent shooting from the three-point line. This ranks the Lady Braves 10th in the nation in the category.

• Southern has committed the eighth-fewest turnovers in the country among Division I teams (118).

• Jackson State is the only team in the SWAC that pulls down at least 40 rebounds a game. The Lady Tigers corral 50.4 boards a night, a figure that is 11 better than the next closest team (Texas Southern) and a mark that ranks third-best in the country.
