A 1-2-3 PUNCH: SFA had three players score in double-figures Monday; Roberts (17), Henderson (17), Carter (12) and are now 4-2 this season when at least three players reach double-figures. 

60 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER: The Ladyjacks ran their mark to 4-0 this season when holding their opponents below 60 points on the season in their 66-47 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
