• Conference play begins on January 1.

• Texas Southern will face Ole Miss for the first time in program history this afternoon. It also marks the first SEC foe that isn't LSU or Arkansas that the Lady Tigers have played against since 1994.

• With Kristy Parker taking home player of the week honors on Dec. 26, Mississippi Valley is currently the only SWAC that has had two different players win POTW honors.

• The Southwestern Athletic Conference has five players ranked in the top 20 nationally in steals per game:
- Shakyla Hill, GSU (5.1; 2nd)
- Alexus Freeman, ALCN (4.0; 5th)
- Dominique Newman, PVAMU (3.3; 16th)
- Shala Dobbins, PVAMU (3.27; 17th)
- Derica Wiggins, JSU (3.25; 20th)

No other conference has more than two players with this distinction.

• Jackson State boasts a plus-7.88 turnover margin, 10th best in the country. Additionally, the Lady Tigers convert 16.1 steals a night as a team, the second-best figure in the nation.
