Posted at 5:29 PM, Feb 01, 2019

LAFAYETTE (Press Release) – Wrapping up its busy weekend, with a Saturday afternoon 2 p.m. game, Louisiana Women’s Basketball (6-14, 4-5 SBC) welcomes Coastal Carolina (10-9, 2-6 SBC) to the CAJUNDOME on Feb. 2 for third home game this week.

HOW TO WATCH/LISTEN/FOLLOW: Saturday’s game will be broadcast on ESPN+ with Dan McDonald (PxP) and Lawana Stokes (analyst) handling the call, and the link to find the game can be found by clicking here.  Steve Peloquin will handle the radio call, with the game being broadcast on ESPN 1420AM.  Live stats will be provided by Louisiana Athletics and they can be found by clicking here.

PREVIEWING THE GAME: The last time that Louisiana and Coastal Carolina met on the court, the Ragin’ Cajuns won 59-55 on Jan. 6, 2018.  The game was memorable because it was head coach Garry Brodhead’s 100th career win, making him the first women’s basketball head coach at Louisiana to win 100 games and the seventh head coach in Louisiana basketball history to reach the century mark.

All-time Louisiana leads the series 2-1, and this will be the fourth meeting all-time between the two programs.  With Louisiana making the trip to Conway, S.C., on Feb. 28, this will be the first season in history that the two teams will meet twice in the same season.
