BATON ROUGE - The Southern Jaguars are out to a 9-1 start in SWAC play so far this year, leading the conference.

Their secret weapon is a dynamic duo of father and son: head coach Roman Banks and freshman point guard Tre'lun.

Being a coach's son cut down the learning curve when the Jags needed their freshman guard to step up after fellow guard Christopher Hyder was declared "out" for the season with a blood clot.

For more on Tre'lun and Roman, Sports 2's Brian Holland has more from the Bluff.
