ATLANTA, Ga.—The Birmingham-Southern women's basketball team won its first road game of the season on Saturday, defeating Agnes Scott College 48-44 in Atlanta, Ga.

The Panthers move to 2-1, while the Scotties drop to 1-3.

The second half was almost identical, with the teams trading baskets and neither leading by more than six at any point.
