Big weekend for Lady Tiger basketball team starting tonight. We face Southern Miss at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse, and after Saturday night we could finish anywhere from 5th to 9th in the league standings. Regardless of where we finish, it's a nice improvement from the last two years. We know what to expect out of the Eagles tonight, full-court pressing and a lot of running on offense. Hope to see you out there this weekend. Your attendance could be the difference.
Last night was a disappointing loss on the diamond to Murray State, our third straight loss to the Thoroughbreds. After getting behind early, the Tigers took the lead in the 7th on Brett Bowan's three-run homer, only to lose in the 9th. Here's an interesting story about Bowan, a juco transfer from Pensacola JC. According to Bowan, who's a Florida native, when the temperature got around 50 in Florida, they broke out the heaters in the dugouts. The last two nights, the temperature has been in the mid-30's at Nat Buring, but it didn't seem to bother Bowan's play.
Talk to you tomorrow, hopefully about a Lady Tiger win!
