2018 Out­look

The Lady Tigers had a dif­fi­cult sea­son in a tough district last year. This year will bring them a fresh set of teams to play and mat­u­ra­tion of a large co­hort of the team who have played to­gether for at least two years.

With the grad­u­a­tion of one of last year’s top scor­ers, the Lady Tigers will have to fo­cus con­sid­er­able en­ergy on re­li­ably gen­er­at­ing bas­kets. With an av­er­age of 37.3 points per game last sea­son, room for growth ex­ists.

The de­fen­sive drills the Lady Tigers started in the pre­sea­son will likely help de­crease the av­er­age of 51.7 points per game they al­lowed last sea­son. Tilt­ing the scales of these two av­er­ages to fa­vor points scored is, nat­u­rally, a goal.
