Warhawks soar over Eagles
The ULM Women's basketball team started off the holiday season with a home game against Southern Mississippi. The Warhawks jumped out to a modest first half lead, before pulling away in the second half to snap their four game home losing streak with a 73 - 55 win.
ULM (2-6, 0-2) used hot shooting collectively 42.2% and capitalized on 19 Southern Miss (4-4) turnovers in the game to pick up the second Warhawk win of the season.
The Eagles used a 7-0 lead to build a solid first half lead, but the hot hand of Jasmine Shaw helped the Warhawks answer with a 13-2 run to build a five point lead to take into the intermission.
Shaw continued to show her hot hand as she shattered her career high with a new high mark with 27 points, and just one rebound short of a double-double. Joining Shaw in double-digits were Alexar Tugler with 13 and Ashley Simmons with 10.
The Warhawks hit the road now for a pair of games in the state of Texas, first at Texas (December 11) and at SMU (December 17) before returning home.
