Richmond will attempt to improve to 8-1 on the season when the Spiders host South Alabama in a non-conference clash on Sunday afternoon. The Jaguars enter the game with a 5-3 record, but they haven’t played since an overtime loss to La Salle on Nov. 27 in the Gulf Coast Showcase. Richmond is coming off a road win against Hampton on Tuesday.

South Alabama led by four seniors

South Alabama has gone on a pair of winning streaks this season, but the Jaguars have also had some losses mixed in as well. They opened the year with a pair of wins against Pikeville College and Southern Miss. Then came a heartbreaking loss against then-No. 22 Auburn, as South Alabama lost by one point as 7-point underdogs. The Jaguars could not recover in their next contest, losing to Chattanooga by 18 points on the road. They picked up a three-game winning streak following those losses, beating Spring Hill, Northeastern and Miami (Ohio). South Alabama lost to La Salle in its most recent game. The Jaguars are led by four seniors. Guard Andre Fox leads the way with 17.8 points per game. He is the best 3-point shooter on the team, connecting on 17 of 47 attempts from beyond the arc. Forward Josh Ajayi is second on the squad in scoring with 15.6 points per game and leads the team with 8.0 rebounds per contest. Guard Chad Lott is adding 14.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per outing. Forward Trhae Mitchell is contributing 10.9 points per game and 4.1 boards per game. He leads the team in assists per game with 2.4 dimes per contest.
