Head Coach Jessica Kern
“I am, first of all, glad the season is here. When you practice so much, you’re ready to just play somebody else. A lot of offensive production tonight.”
“It’s nice to see we’re putting the pieces together. I’m happy that we are from an energy standpoint all on the same page and from a positivity standpoint, we’re all on the same page.”
“They’ve worked really hard this season. Overall we’ve got people to score the ball at every position and that’s what makes me really excited.”
TSU will get its final tune up of the season with an exhibition contest against Cincinnati Christian on Nov. 5 in the Gentry Center before officially kicking off the 2018-19 campaign at Lipscomb on Nov. 9.
