Preview: FAMU basketball travels for SWAC doubleheader at Texas Southern
Three-pointers: Florida A&M women's basketball split its last stretch of games while hosting Alabama A&M last Saturday and Alabama State on Monday. A buzzer-beater by guard Mide Oriyomi lifted the Rattlers (4-16, 2-7 SWAC) over AAMU behind her career-high 24 points. In the following game, guard Ahriahna Grizzle scored a career-high point tally with 31, but FAMU ran out of gas late against ASU. Oriyomi was named SWAC Impact Player of the Week while Grizzle got the SWAC Player of the Week nod. Texas Southern is near the bottom of the Southwestern Athletic Conference with a single win over Mississippi Valley State.
FAMU key players: Guard Dylan Horton (16.2 points per game), guard Ahriahna Grizzle (11.1 points per game), guard Mide Oriyomi (5.1 rebounds per game)
