Mississippi Valley State Overview

Women’s basketball is a turnover forcing machine, averaging 21.46 caused a night to rank 22nd in the country to go along with a top-65 placement for steals per game (9.9).

Ronni Williams never leaves the floor as she’s top-30 nationally in minutes per game (36.06) as well as a top-50 showing for steals per game (2.54).

Zakiya Mahoney has established herself as the go-to scorer for Coach Walker-Johnson, slotting in fifth leaguewide at 14.5 points a contest.

Sarah Moore has emerged as a rebound magnet with an increase in playing time, perched at third in the Southwestern Athletic Conference with an average of 8.7 boards.

Scouting The Opponent: Florida A&M Rattlers

FAMU has alternated wins and losses to begin its first SWAC season, opening the new year with a victory over rival Bethune-Cookman before toppling Grambling State last Monday.

Coach Pillow’s squad has been foul-averse so far through 15 matchups, averaging 16.9 hacks a game to rank as the second-lowest in the conference.

Shutting down Dylan Horton should be the primary goal for Valley as she ranks second in the SWAC with 16.8 points on average and is third for field-goal percentage at 43.6%.

The other Rattler to be wary of out on the perimeter is sniper Anisja Harris, who fronts the league in both three-pointers per game (2.17) and three-point percentage (34.7%).
