The Southern women’s basketball team continues its tour of the power conferences when it plays Kansas State at 2 p.m. Wednesday in Manhattan, Kan.
The Jaguars began a string of three games against power-conferences when they lost at Nebraska 89-38 on Monday. After a break for Thanksgiving and final exams, Southern visits Iowa State on Dec. 6.
Southern (2-2) scored just two points in the second quarter and trailed the Huskers 49-12 at halftime. The 12 points tied the Nebraska record for fewest points allowed in a first half, a feat last accomplished in 1997.
The Jaguars committed 27 fouls and the Huskers made 28-of-35 free throws. Southern made 4-of-9.
Nebraska outrebounded the Jaguars 47-37 and held them to 24.6 percent (16-of-65) shooting from the floor, including 2-of-19 on 3-pointers.
In its two road games, including a loss at Texas A&M on Nov. 15, Southern has been outscored 177-85.
Kansas State didn’t fare much better Monday night as it fell to 3-1 after a 97-57 loss at No. 1 Connecticut.
