On Saturday, the Southern Miss women's basketball team beat Louisiana-Monroe on the road at Fant-Ewing Coliseum for the first time since 1981.
The Eagles (3-1) dominated in the first half, holding a 29-9 lead at halftime. Senior Amber Landing had 12 points, seven blocks and seven rebounds.
"Amber played extremely well," Southern Miss head coach Joye Lee-McNelis said in a news release from the school. "She got a few blocks early, and I think those blocks really generated some confidence for her. That was truly the difference: the confidence she played with. And in turn she hit a bucket and generated a lot of positive thoughts for her, and I think she played her best game today in a Lady Eagle uniform."
The Eagles face off with Ole Miss on Tuesday.
