­­­SHREVEPORT, La. – The Centenary women’s basketball team closes out the pre-Christmas portion of its schedule on Wednesday, Dec. 17 as the Ladies (0-6) travel to Millsaps College. Tip is slated for 5 p.m.

Centenary received double-doubles from Haley Deshautelle and Briana Edwards on Monday evening, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a 73-47 setback to Rhodes College. Edwards picked up her third double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 rebounds – both team bests. Deshautelle logged the first double-double of her career with 10 points and 10 boards.

The duo leads the offensive output for the season. Edwards is averaging a double-double with 11.6 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. Deshautelle, who has tallied double-digits in her last three outings, ranks second with 10.3 points per contest.

Millsaps enters the contest sporting a two-game skid after falling 68-64 at the University of Dallas on Dec. 7. The contest marks just the second outing this season at home for the Majors as they claimed a 68-54 victory over Rust College on Nov. 24.

Velvet Johnson leads a trio averaging double figures in scoring with 17.1 points per game. Sam Perez averages 12 .1 and Kala Freeman has 10.6 points per game. Miah Brooks paces the squad on the glass with 10 rebounds.
