Women’s basketball suffered its first defeat of the season Friday when they went down against Stephen F. Austin at WRJ Coliseum.

The Ladyjacks took control of the game at the very beginning, going on a 8-0 run to start the game.

The Warhawks would battle back, bringing the score to a tie at 20 with a pair of Alayshia Hunter free throws. That would be the only time the Warhawks would have the game tied.

Senior Sharnice Brooks scored a team-high 19 points in 26 minutes of action. Freshman Daja Chase was the only other Warhawk in double-figures.

The Warhawks were down by 11 at the half, before a rough second half shooting percentage of 20.8 percent would ultimately doom the team.

In comparison, the Jaguars had four players in double figures. The Jaguars were able to put up a shooting percentage of 44.7 percent for the game.

The Warhawks are now 1-1 on the year. The team will travel to Starkville to face off with the Bulldogs of Mississippi State Tuesday.

The loss is the first of head coach Jeff Dow’s ULM career.
