Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun women’s basketball team returns to the hardwood on Wednesday night, when coach Garry Brodhead’s squad travels to Bowling Green, Kentucky to take on the WKU Lady Toppers in Sun Belt Conference action.

The game opens the final road trip of the season for Louisiana, who closes out their regular season schedule on Saturday, when they take on first place Arkansas St.

Louisiana, who ran their win streak to four games on Sunday, defeating the South Alabama Jaguars in overtime, 68-61, currently stands at 1-13, overall, and 7-9 in Sun Belt Conference play.

That 7-9 league mark puts the Cajuns, who have guaranteed themselves a spot in the postseason Sun belt Conference Tournament, in a tie for sixth place in the conference standings, one game behind fifth place Georgia St.

WKU, who is 19-8, overall, and 11-5 in league play, has won their last five games, and are one game behind Arkansas St. in the conference standings.

Offensively, UL is currently sixth in the conference, scoring 64.6 points-per-game, while WKU ranks second, averaging 73.5 points a contest.

Defensively, the Cajuns rank third in the league, allowing 64.6 points-per-game, while the Lady Toppers are giving up 63.7 points a tilt, which is second in the conference.

Louisiana is led by sophomore guard Sylvana Okde, who is averaging 10.9 points-per-game, while WKU is paced by junior forward Chastity Gooch, who is averaging 17.8  points-per-game, along with a league-leading 8.6 rebounds a contest.

The Lady Toppers won the earlier match-up this season, defeating the Cajuns, 68-63, back on January 25 at the Cajundome, and lead the all-time series, 38-2.

Tip-off time is scheduled for 7 o’clock.
