HAMMOND, LA. – The Southeastern Louisiana University women’s basketball team won against Dillard 90-34 in the University Center Friday night.

Southeastern pulled away with an early lead over Dillard as Hailey Giaratano sunk in a three pointer within the first minute of the game. The ball ended up in the hands of SLU again whenever Huderson stole the ball back and gave it to Pierre.

The second quarter was completely controlled by the Lady Lions as they improved their lead by another 25 points which was their largest lead all season before halftime. The first basket of the second quarter was made by Giaratano as a layup in the paint with an assist by Brown.
