ETSU is coming off of a dominant win over Western Carolina and have had a full week to prepare for tomorrow’s game.

Raven Dean (Charlotte, N.C.), Britney Snowden (Pensacola, Fla.), Malloree Schurr (Montgomery, Texas), and Sadasia Tipps (Hickory, N.C.) have been tremendous in the paint for the Bucs with rebounds and points. Shy Copney (Johnson City, Tenn.) continues to come off the bench and give the Bucs points when needed. Jada Craig (Winston-Salem, N.C.), Anajae Stephney (Knoxville, Tenn.), and Alayjah Sherer (Tupelo, Miss.) have also been key players for the Bucs. Sherer scored 10 points in the fourth quarter against UNCG last week and topped a new career-high of 16 points. The Bucs have truly worked well together as a team.
