SOUTHWEST WILL OPEN BASKETBALL CONFERENCE PLAY THIS WEEK

Continuing a stretch of five straight road games that began last Tuesday, the Southwest men's and women's basketball teams travel to East Tennessee this weekend, November 14-15, to open conference play. Southwest will take on Roane State Community College Friday night in Harriman, Tennessee. Game times will be 5 p.m. for the women's game, followed by the men at 7 p.m. (central time). The Saluqis and Lady Saluqis will then play Walters State Community College Saturday afternoon in Morristown, Tennessee. Game times will be 1 p.m. (women) and 3 p.m. (central time). Both doubleheaders will be broadcast locally on WUMR 91.7 FM.

The Southwest men's team began last week with a 96-64 loss at Southeastern Illinois College, then defeated Northwest Mississippi Community College 94-80 Thursday before losing to Coahoma Community College 88-79 Saturday. In the win over Northwest Mississippi, several Saluqis had outstanding games, led by freshman Randy Young with 17 points, sophomore Chris Adams with 15 points, and freshman Anthony Holley with 13 points and 10 rebounds. The men's record now stands at 2-2 heading into this weekend's games.

The Lady Saluqis lost to the 12th-ranked Southeastern Illinois women by a score of 86-67, and were scheduled to play Northwest Mississippi Thursday; however, play was cancelled when it was discovered that no officials were assigned to the game. The Southwest women came back Saturday night to defeat Coahoma 70-63. That victory, led by freshman Katresha Glass with a game-high 25 points, improved the Saluqis record to 2-1.
