Friday, January 10, 2003
NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State women's basketball team will be seeking to break into the Ohio Valley Conference win column in the Lady Tigers' first conference road trip of the season Saturday (Jan. 11) at Tennessee-Martin. The Lady Tigers make the trip to UTM coming off a pair of home defeats to start OVC slate. TSU held leads in the games against Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State, only to see the visitors rally for wins in each case. TSU will be going against a Skyhawk team which opened conference play with a 72-62 win over a rebuilding Tennessee Tech team Thursday night. UTM is 4-8 overall on the season. Junior college transfer guard Kisha Stewart has scored in double figures in six of the Lady Tigers' games. Stewart leads TSU at 10.2 ppg. TSU will have a tipoff of 4 p.m. against UTM in Skyhawk Arena. The teams split their two meetings last season.
