UL Women Meet Middle Tennessee
UL freshman guard Kia Wilridge
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun women’s basketball team is back in action on Saturday afternoon, when they take in the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, in a Sun Belt Conference match-up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Louisiana will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak, after falling to Western Kentucky, 75-64, on Wednesday, a loss which dropped them 7-11 overall, and 1-8 in Sun Belt Conference play, while Middle Tennessee defeated defeated UALR, 65-56, on Wednesday, for their sixth-consecutive victory, moving them to 12-5 overall, and 7-1 in league play.
The Cajuns are led by freshman guard Sylvana Okde, who is averaging 11.8 points-per-game, while the Blue Raiders are paced by junior forward Ebony Rowe, who is averaging 22.4 points a contest.
This will mark the second game between the two teams this year, with Middle Tennessee winning, 72-45, back on November 24, in Lafayette, La. Rowe scored 21 points to lead the way for the Blue Raiders in that game.
Tip-off time is set for 3 pm.
