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.
