Randle’s 36 leads Southern past Indiana State to snap losing streak

SIU women’s basketball (8-16, 3-11) secured an 80-70 win on Saturday afternoon at Indiana State (8-16, 4-10), as Laniah Randle set a career-high with 36 points, just two days after her previous high of 32 points against Evansville.

With her performance in the past two games, Randle has raised her points per game average to 19.0, and is just six points shy of the Missouri Valley Conference scoring leader, Katie Dinnebier of Drake.

Randle also had 11 rebounds, giving her a double-double on the night. She was followed by Seairra Huges with 10 rebounds, adding to a Saluki total of 40. Jaidynn Mason was second on the team in scoring with 18 points.

After a tough overtime game at Evansville on Thursday night, SIU kept its momentum into the next game, staying on the Sycamores for most of the first half. Indiana State had a five-point lead before with a layup from Mason sent the Salukis into halftime down just 33-30.

The Salukis came in with even more aggression in the third quarter, swiftly taking the lead on another layup from Mason. The Salukis maintained their lead the rest of the game, able to pull away as it progressed.

SIU would build up a double-digit lead at the halfway point in the fourth, and led by as much as 16 with around three and a half minutes to go.

The Saluki’s next stop on a four-game road trip is the McLeod Center in Cedar Falls, Iowa to take on the Northern Iowa Panthers (10-13, 9-5) on Thursday at 6 p.m.
