CHALK TALK Southern, which leads the Southwestern Athletic Conference in scoring (75.7 ppg) has won the past five matchups between the teams and seven of the past nine. ...

Whitley, the conference's reigning player of the week, is coming of a career-high, 32 points in the Jaguars' recent victory over Grambling State. Southern has won five straight games after previously dropping four in a row. ... The Golden Lions have won four straight for the first time since 2019. ... The Jaguars have forced 335 turnovers and registered 285 assists, both of which are tops in the SWAC.
