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.
