Bulldogs fall to Southern University New Orleans
Fisk Univeristy mens and womens basketball teams lost a doubleheader to visiting Southern
University New Orleans Monday at Henderson A. Johnson, gymnasium. The
Lady Bulldogs fell 78-57, and the men went down 78 to 60. Both of the host teams
took the floor short-handed because of injuries. The Lady Bulldogs
played without center Nacori Foreman, their top rebounder. She was
sorely missed against SUNO's huge front line, which featured
two players who stood 6-foot-5. Nonetheless, the Lady Bulldogs played
tough the entire game. The difference was SUNO's ability to rebound the
ball. Meanwhile, the men were without Cameron Lewis and Harold
Jenkins. They are important cogs in the Bulldogs high octane attack.
Their offensive punch was sorely missed, as the Bulldogs struggled to
find their flow offensively.
