Ladyjacks Prepare to Face UTSA
Feb. 2, 2007
NACOGDOCHES - The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks will look to make it two consecutive wins as they host Texas-San Antonio Saturday in the William R. Johnson Coliseum. The Ladyjacks are 14-7 (.667) on the season and tied for second in the Southland Conference West Division with a 6-2 (.750) league record. The Ladyjacks enter tonight's contest winners in four of their last five, and seven of their last nine games. UTSA is 7-12 (.368) on the season and is currently fifth in the SLC West with a 3-4 (.429) conference mark. The Roadrunners snapped a three-game conference losing streak Thursday with a 15-point victory over Sam Houston State. The game against the Roadrunners is slated to tip off at 6 p.m.
SFA vs. the Roadrunners: The Ladyjacks own a 29-4 (.879) all-time record against Texas-San Antonio. SFA has won four of the last six meetings between the two schools, including two-straight. The two schools met three times during the 2005-06 season splitting the regular-season series with each team winning on its home floor. Both schools advanced to the 2006 SLC Championship game where SFA recorded a 56-48 victory in Nacogdoches.
Double-Double: Senior Evelyn Edwards recorded her second double-double of the season Wednesday against the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The 6-0, Little Elm native scored 10 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in the contest. It marked the 13th time this season that an SFA player has recorded a double-double.
Spreading Out the Wealth: The Ladyjacks had five players score in double figures against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, led by senior Charity Egenti's 25 points. The last time SFA had five players finish a game in double figures, was last season in Natchitoches, La., where SFA recorded an 85-69 win.
Dominating the Lane: Senior post Charity Egenti continues to be one of the top threats in the Southland Conference. During SLC games, Egenti has taken her play to another level. She currently leads the league in scoring (21.0 ppg) and rebounding (10.8 rpg), and is currently third in blocks (1.25 bpg) during conference only games.
Freshman Leadership: If Charity Egenti is making a push for SLC Player of the Year honors, then rookie Whitney Cormier is making just as loud a statement for league freshman of the year honors. Cormier has started the last 16 games for the Ladyjacks, and is currently third on the team averaging 9.1 points per game. She has scored in double-figures eight times season, including a career-high 23 at Southeastern Louisiana.
