Union Freshman duo ready for Gulf South Tournament

JACKSON, Tenn — The 9th ranked Lady Bulldogs have an uncommon duo in their starting backcourt with two freshman leading them into the conference tournament.

The pair of Jadas, Smith and Perkins, have combined for over 280 assists in their first year playing college basketball, and they said having another freshman along with them on the ride is a special experience.
