TSU Women's Basketball Great Carolyn Aldridge to be Honored as an OVC Legend

Tennessee State University women’s basketball alum Carolyn Aldridge will be honored during the 2018 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Championships.

For the fourth year in a row the OVC will recognize men's and women's basketball legends from each of its member institutions during the tournament.

The legends will be recognized through signage, P.A. announcements and a game program feature story during the event.

Carolyn Aldridge was a member of the women’s basketball team from 1992-95.

She is TSU’s second all-time leading scorer with 1,622 career points and helped the Lady Tigers win back-to-back league championships in 1994 and 1995.

Aldridge averaged 18.6 points as a junior and poured in 22.8 per outing her senior year. She was a three-time All-OVC First team selection and scored 51 points in a single game, a record that still stands.

With roots dating back to 1948, the OVC and its member institutions have produced many outstanding student-athletes who have earned numerous accolades and led their respective schools to success on the hardwood.

This year’s OVC Basketball Championships will be held February 28 through March 3 at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana.
