NASHVILLE--- In the final game of the 2019-20 season, the Tennessee State University women’s basketball team fell to Belmont University, 84-51, Saturday night in the Gentry Center. Graduate student Keniece Purvis was honored before the start of the game.

The Lady Tigers were led in scoring by Jazmine Young and Jaden Wrightsell who each scored 10 points. Jasmine Broner pulled down a team-best five rebounds while Wrightsell tallied four steals.
