BATON ROUGE – The LSU women’s basketball team will host Northern Colorado on Sunday, November 11 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Game time is set for 1 p.m. on the SEC Network Plus and Talk 107.3 FM.

 

The Lady Tigers are off to a 1-0 start of the season following Tuesday’s season-opening 66-52 win over Sam Houston State. Junior Ayana Mitchell produced her first double-double of the season with 20 points and 15 rebounds in the victory. It was the 12th double-double of her career.

 

The starting guard trio of Jailin Cherry, Shanice Norton and Khayla Pointer combined for 32 points, five assists, six steals and three blocked shots. Norton, the team’s lone senior, scored 13 points, two off her career high, was perfect from the free throw line, shot 62.5 percent from the field and stole the ball three times.

 

“Timing and repetition are going to be key for us moving forward,” said LSU head coach Nikki Fargas. “We need to continue to get in the gym and get up shots at game tempo.”

 

Northern Colorado (0-1) lost at Colorado on Tuesday night in the Bears season opener 77-69. Senior guard Savannah Smith scored 32 points for UNC, including a program-tying record eight 3-pointers. This will be the Bears first trip to Baton Rouge and just the second game in the series. UNC, a member of the Big Sky Conference, won last year’s meeting in Greeley, 58-50.

 

Sunday is Hometown Heroes Day at the PMAC. First responders, military veterans and other hometown heroes will receive free admission with ID and guest tickets are available for $2.00. At halftime, the members of LSU’s 4th Quarter Friday training staff will be recognized for their roles with the Louisiana State Police Department. There will also be a performance by participants in Sunday’s Tiger Girls clinic and a postgame autograph session in the Courtside Club.

 

Patrick Wright will call the game on the LSU Sports Radio Network and the SECN+ with color analyst Jeff Palermo. Wright is in his 29th season as the “Voice of the Lady Tigers”. Fans can listen on 107.3 FM and audio broadcasts are available online at LSUSports.net/live. LSU Sports Radio Network affiliates KJNA-102.7 FM (Jena, Louisiana) and KWKH-1130 AM (Shreveport, Louisiana) will also carry Sunday’s game.
