On December 13, 2019, the Lady Tigers Basketball Team got to come home after a 3 week stretch of away games. They have been busy competing against NCAA Division 1 & 2 teams to help prepare for their conference play this season. For this home game, however, the Tigers took on the Kansas Christian College Falcons and looked to get another in the win column before the next conference game on the 16th of December.
The Tigers would assert their dominance quickly in this game. In addition to getting off to a quick start offensively, they would also show off their dominate defense only allowing 6 points for the visiting Falcons. The Tigers would take advantage of their strength in numbers as they would tire down the Falcon’s defense and score easy baskets. They would also cause a lot of turnovers and take advantage of their speed and transition play. At half the Tigers would find themselves with a comfortable 40-12 lead.
The next half would almost be identical to the first as the Tigers would find ways to cause the Falcons to commit turnovers and then would go down the floor and score. The Tigers also had one of their better shooting days as they shot over 45% and would make 9-24 beyond the arc. Four Tigers would even score in the double digits. At the end of regulation they would take home a dominating victory with the score Tigers: 91 and Falcons: 30.
The Lady Tigers are looking forward to the heat of the season coming up in the first quarter of 2020.
