Against Alcorn, Sanders scored 12 points 5-of-8 and hauled in six rebounds to help lead AAMU to a 64-44 win.

She hit 10-of-15 overall and connected 11-of-13 free throws. Sanders also finished with a double-double hauling in 10 rebounds.
Head Coach Altherias Warmley stated, “I would like to congratulate Jasmine for her solid performance this past weekend. She has worked hard to get back to full strength after an injury that slowed her down early in the season.”
On the season, Sanders is averaging 10.9 point per game and leads AAMU in free throws percentage. She is also averaging a team best in rebounds 6.1 rpg.
“Jasmine continues to play a solid role for this team on both ends of the floor,” said Warmley.
