It was a bad day at the office Saturday for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Lady Lions (3-11, 1-3) as they fell to the Southern University Lady Jaguars (6-8, 4-1) 72-51.

The Lady Jags were led by seniors Briana Green and Samantha Duncan. Green led all scorers with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Duncan followed by adding 15 points.

It didn't take long for the Lady Jaguars to create separation, as they shot 43 percent from the field and 3-6 from three. They also knocked down all their free throw attempts in the first half.

"Their best player is Green," Kilbert said. "She's the person who really demands double teams. You have to try to double team her and not leave people open. Duncan hit some big three pointers early on."

Overall, Southern made eight three pointers compared to the three made by the Lady Lions.

UAPB Head Coach Nate Kilbert addressed the injuries that the Lady Lions have dealt with, and how it's been tough trying to fight through them.

"They're not our problem," Kilbert said. "Our problem is that we just can't get healthy. We can't keep our main people on the floor or in practice. You just can see how bad our chemistry is right now with so many that have been out. We knew Southern were going to be the way they are, very scrappy. They didn't do anything special, they just stayed aggressive, and we didn't match that aggressiveness.

"It started at Alabama A&M when we lost Shawntayla Harris, we lost Faith Ohanta, we lost Ashlee Daniel, we lost Destiny Brewton, and they hadn't practiced all week. We just have to keep these kids focused and continue to get healthy, and we're going to be a better team later on down the stretch."
