NEWS AND NOTES:
• On the heels of her fourth and fifth 30-point games of the season, Texas Southern guard Joyce Kennerson continues to lead the nation in scoring at 26.3 points per game. Kennerson and TSU face a stiff test this week in Jackson State -- which ranks No. 3 in scoring defense and No. 2 in opponent field goal percentage among SWAC teams. Last season, the junior guard found it tough to get going against Jackson State, who was able to limit her to 12 points a game.
• The first SWAC Digital Network broadcast of the season is Jan. 15 and will feature a rematch of the SWAC Women's Basketball Tournament Championship when Texas Southern takes on Grambling State at 5:30 P.M. The men's game follows at 7:30 p.m.
• Prairie View A&M's Shala Dobbins leads the nation in free throws made (109) and attempted (140).
•Southern's Briana Green and Grambling's Shakyla Hill are the only two players that rank in the SWAC's top 10 for scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and field goal percentage.
• Jackson State has limited opponents to 23.3 percent shooting from three-point range, which leads the SWAC as well as the country. Texas Southern, the SWAC leader in team three-point percentage (33.3) will try to put that rank to the test.
