Strong Second Half Lifts Panthers Over Hendrix

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern women's basketball team stopped a five-game skid Sunday with its 65-54 win over Hendrix College in Southern Athletic Association play.  BSC (8-15) is now 6-7 against conference opponents and tied for fourth in the league heading into the final weekend.

Three Panthers finished in double-figures.  Misa Fujii (Sunnyvale, Calif./Notre Dame) made 5-of-6 from the floor and was a perfect 2-for-2 at the charity stripe to lead the team with 15 points.  Christian McGowan (Birmingham, Ala./Oak Mountain HS) finished with 12 points, and Derienne Black (Madison, Ala./Sparkman HS) earned 10, respectively.

Emilee Olsen (Marietta, Ga./Lassiter HS) grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds and had a game-high five blocks.
