    HATTIESBURG, Miss. (2/15/24) – Arkansas State women’s basketball (13-11, 6-7 SBC) engaged in a fierce defensive battle against Southern Miss (14-10, 7-6 SBC), but the Lady Eagles were too much as the Red Wolves fell 57-48 on Thursday night at Reed Green Coliseum.
     
    Izzy Higginbottom and Wynter Rogers led the scoring effort for A-State, with both netting 11 points in the contest. Anna Griffin had an active day on the boards with 11 rebounds and finished with seven points.
     
    As a team, the Scarlet and Black shot 15-of-51 (29 percent) from the field and 4-of-21 (19 percent) from 3-point range. Southern Miss won the turnover battle 24-15 and scored 27 points as a result.
     
    The Lady Eagles jumped out to an early 11-5 advantage, but the Red Wolves responded with a 5-0 run to make it a one-point contest. Southern Miss quickly broke away once again, going on a 7-0 run that allowed them to close the quarter with a 22-17 advantage.
     
    A-State outscored their opponent 7-2 and tied the game to open the second quarter. With 2:32 remaining, the game would enter a 23-minute delay after a skirmish that resulted in ejections for five players between both teams.
     
    The Scarlet and Black received six free throw opportunities as a result and made five to claim their first lead of the ballgame. Wynter Rogers followed with a pair of three pointers as the Red Wolves went into the break with a 37-34 lead.
     
    A-State shot 11-for-28 (39 percent) from the field, 4-for-12 (33 percent) from deep, and 11-for-14 (79 percent) from the charity stripe during the first half.
     
    The Lady Eagles went on a 9-0 run that spanned most of the third quarter, jumping ahead 43-37. The Red Wolves did not make a basket until the 3:10 mark, but were able to cut into the deficit and go into the fourth down 49-46.
