One of the 23 Best
ETSU is one of just 23 schools in the NCAA to have two players with over 400 points scored this season. Senior Shamauria Bridges (Miramar, Fla.) has 419 points while junior Tianna Tarter (Johnson City, Tenn.) became the first ETSU player since 2010 to score 500 points with 509 points.
Bridges Set to Break Another Record
Bridges with 82 three’s made this season, needs four threes to pass Michele DeVault in 2007 for the most three-pointers made in a single-season in ETSU history.
The Dynamic Trio
The trio of Bridges, Tarter and sophomore Raven Dean (Charlotte, N.C.) have each scored in double figures in the last six games for the blue and gold.
Sophomore Carley Lytton (Floyd, Va.) needs just five points to score 100 points this season. Lytton can become the fourth Buc on the roster to score at least 100 this season.
