Scouting the Buccaneers

Tianna Tarter (Johnson City, Tenn.) and Erica Haynes-Overton (Nashville, Tenn.) continue to lead the Bucs in double figures with their aggressive full court press and steals. Both guards have set records in their steals and Tarter continues to move up in the ETSU records. Fellow guard Jada Craig (Winston-Salem, N.C.) has helped Tarter and Haynes-Overton in their full court press. Their quickness and agility makes them unstoppable. Forward Britney Snowden (Pensacola, Fla.) has been a huge help to the Bucs down low after averaging 6.1 rebounds per game, while putting up points offensively. Shy Copney (Johnson City, Tenn.) and Alayjah Sherer (Tupelo, Miss.) have added great depth to the Bucs after coming off the bench and able to put up points quickly. Copney has been a threat with her three-point shot as she has 27. Sadasia Tipps (Hickory, N.C.), Malloree Scurr (Montgomery, Texas), and Anajae Stephney (Knoxville, Tenn.) have been tremendous in the post and have played great defense in the paint.
