(New Orleans, La.)  Junior Alena Evans (JR/Las Vegas, NV) scored 16 points on 8-of-12 shooting as DU did what no other team in the GCAC could do by defeating Southern University at New Orleans by the score of 60-57 at the Battlefield in Dent Hall.  The Lady Knights were a perfect 10-0 in conference play before today's loss.

As a team the Lady Bleu Devils (15-10, 7-4 GCAC) shot 48 percent from the field while SUNO (16-4, 10-1) shot just 35 percent.

Sophomore Shantrell Lumar (SO/Baton Rouge, LA) chipped in with 10 points and five assists in the victory.

DU continues GCAC play as they travel to Jacksonville to face Edward Waters College on Monday, February 23.  Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
