New Orleans Series Notes

– The longest South Alabama win streak consists of 11 straight victories for the Jags before the Privateers won the final meeting in Sun Belt play.
– New Orleans holds a 19-game win streak against South Alabama spanning nearly a decade.

Last time with New Orleans
-It was the first time in her career that Devyn Lowe scored 10 or more points in consecutive outings.
-It’s also the first occasion that Lowe recorded multiple thefts — she, along with Jayla Morrow and Mahogany Vaught, shared game-high honors with three each — since posting three in the Jaguars’ final non-conference contest the previous year with a Dec. 20 visit to East Tennessee State.
-The scoring total was a season-high for Morrow with 12 points. 
– She also tied a career high after making three three-point field goals.
-It was the second consecutive game that Antoinette Lewis paced South in rebounding.
-Jadona Davis tied a career best with a pair of blocks for the second straight outing.

Notes from Tulane
– For the first time this season South used a previous starting lineup with the same five starters that took the floor at Rutgers. 
– Powell led the Jags in scoring for the second time this season, and the first occasions since that Rutgers contest.
– Vaught had five rebounds on the night, matching her previous season high recorded in a season-opening victory over Mobile on Nov. 9. 
– Williams posted season high figures in both points and rebounds.
– The Jags connected on a season-low five three-pointers while recording their lowest three-point percentage (17.9%) of the year.
