The SIU women’s basketball team (8-18, 3-13) dropped another conference game, falling to the Missouri State Bears (18-7, 12-4) on the road 77-42.

Laniah Randle scored half of Southern’s points, finishing with 22 along with six rebounds. Seairra Hughes was right behind her in rebounds with five.

The first half was slow and steady with jumpers from Randle, and Hughes and a three-pointer from freshman Maddy Saracco ending the first quarter at 23-9.

Business picked up in the second quarter with Randle racking up points on layups and free throws. The Salukis were able to make some progress, but still trailed by 12 at halftime.

In the second half, the Bears cracked down on Southern and extended its lead in the process. Missouri State’s Kennedy Taylor and Paige Rocca had 15 points each, with Taylor also grabbing 11 rebounds.

Southern will look to right the ship on Thursday, as it hosts the Illinois State Redbirds (18-8, 11-5) at 7 p.m. at the Banterra Center.
