UL freshman guard Kia Wilridge


Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun women's basketball team is back in action on Saturday afternoon, when they take in the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, in a Sun Belt Conference match-up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Louisiana will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak, after falling to Western Kentucky, 75-64, on Wednesday, a loss which dropped them 7-11 overall, and 1-8 in Sun Belt Conference play, while Middle Tennessee defeated defeated UALR, 65-56, on Wednesday, for their sixth-consecutive victory, moving them to 12-5 overall, and 7-1 in league play.

The Cajuns are led by freshman guard Sylvana Okde, who is averaging 11.8 points-per-game, while the Blue Raiders are paced by junior forward Ebony Rowe, who is averaging 22.4 points a contest.

This will mark the second game between the two teams this year, with Middle Tennessee winning, 72-45, back on November 24, in Lafayette, La. Rowe scored 21 points to lead the way for the Blue Raiders in that game.

Tip-off time is set for 3 pm.
