LADY TIGERS HAMPERED BY FIELD GOAL SHOOTING WOESFOR SECOND STRAIGHT GAME IN KSU TOURNAMENT
MANHATTAN, Kansas --- For the second straight day, Tennessee State was hampered by field goal shooting woes, this time in a 66-42 loss Saturday to New Hampshire in the consolation round of the Kansas State Commerce Bank Tournament. Despite their shooting woes, the Lady Tigers only trailed 26-18 as New Hampshire struggled from the field as well in the opening half. However, New Hampshire heated up early in the final half, going on a 19-5 run over the first five minutes to build a comfortable lead. LaKisha Clay was the only Lady Tiger to score in double figures, tallying a game-high 18 points. Leslie Dean had a team-high seven rebounds as the Lady Tigers faced a 50-35 rebounding deficit. TSU finished the game 15-of-52 shooting for 25 percent. New Hampshire was led by Ashley Cerniglia with 14 points, and Lindsay Adams 11, the only UNH players to score in double figures. TSU will host Belmont Tuesday in a home game to be held in the Gaylord Entertainment Center.
