BOVINA, Miss. – Northwestern (La.) State handed Alcorn State its fourth straight loss to open the season, as NW State won 12-0 on Thursday.

 “Obviously, we did struggle,” Alcorn State coach Richard Zvinavashe said. “We’re playing against teams that are more established, but that’s not and excuse. We just need to come back and play with extra effort.” Alcorn (0-4) lost twice this past weekend – falling 9-0 to Louisiana-Monroe on Friday and 9-0 to SE Louisiana on Sunday.

Alcorn returns to action on Wednesday, Sept. 21, when the Braves travel to Arkansas-Pine Bluff. For updated information on Alcorn State athletics, visit the official Web site at www.alcornsports.com.
