The UT Arlington women’s basketball team enters Saturday’s contest against South Alabama reeling from six straight losses to begin Sun Belt Conference play.

But in order to break through for their first conference win of the season and of coach Krista Gerlich’s tenure, those six losses have been put in the rearview mirror.

“We just have to let it go, move forward and focus on South Alabama,” center Deshera Nwanguma said after Wednesday’s 85-62 loss to Troy. “We can’t let it break our confidence.”

Nwanguma was a bright spot for the Mavs (1-16, 0-6 Sun Belt Conference) in the loss to Troy, registering 16 of her team-high 20 points in the second half and pulling down 15 rebounds.

Nwanguma comes into the game against South Alabama (5-11, 3-3) averaging 11.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

She has scored 45 points in UTA’s past two games.
