NEWS AND NOTES:
•Texas Southern boasts a sparkling 0.19 ERA in conference play thus far in the season. Upcoming opponent Arkansas-Pine Bluff will put that to the test, as UAPB has scored more runs (82) than any other team has so far in SWAC play.
•Mississippi Valley State is the only team in the SWAC that has yet to hit a home run in league play. On the flip side, Alabama A&M --MVSU’s opponent this weekend -- has hit a SWAC-high 11 bombs so far this season. However, AAMU has also allowed the second-most dingers to league foes with six.
•Grambling State has stumbled out of the gate in league play, dropping 10 straight contests. The Lady Tigers look to halt their skid against Prairie View, who is currently on an eight-game win streak against GSU dating back to 2015.
•Justine Jean of Alabama State notched a career-high 13 strikeouts in leading the Lady Hornets to a 7-0 win over S.C. State yesterday.
•Vernon Bland is one win away from his 100th victory as PVAMU softball coach.
