Women’s Basketball Season Thus Far
The Women’s Basketball team at Tennessee State University kicked off their season in November and has only 11 games left in conference play. The lady Tigers are 3-14 overall and 1-7 in conference.
The team began their season facing University of Memphis on Nov. 10. The team fell short in overtime with a 79-75 loss. They continued to fight hard throughout their preseason and came out with two big wins against Fisk University (93-48) and Lipscomb University (71-64).
Jumping right into conference play, the Tigers lost their first three games against University of Tennessee at Martin, Southeast Missouri State University and Jacksonville State University. Nonetheless, they pulled out their first conference victory with a 76-66 win against Tennessee Tech University on Jan. 6.
“We’re still trying to get used to each other and find our groove. I have no doubt that our team is going to grow from here. Lots of potential and drive to improve from everyone and I know we are going to finish off this season strong,” said Kaliya Griffin, a sophomore from San Jose, California.
Coming up, the Tigers have half of their conference games still remaining with 6 home games and 5 away games.
