JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 15, 2018) – With a loud and excited crowd filled with elementary school students, Brooks Gym was a fun environment for the Bucs to play in. ETSU cruised past Wofford, 82-53 in a 29-point victory on Thursday morning to improve to 16-10 and 9-2 in the SoCon, as the Terriers fall to 10-17 and 3-9 in the SoCon.
Inside the Numbers
Head coach Brittney Ezell
“Relentless effort today. It really was tip-off to buzzer. I thought the kids were dialed in and focused. They were led by their upperclassmen. Tianna had a phenomenal day to get us started. Erica Haynes-Overton put up a stat line that’s something out of a video game. Raven had a great game. Britney was tough. I thought we defended hard. I thought we ran hard in transition and I thought we played the way we’ve been trying to coach them to play all year.”
It’s not who you play. It’s how you play. This is how we want to play constantly. This is what we did when we made the comeback at Chattanooga. This is what we did when we’re really successful. I think the kids have bought into that. We have to play the same way in every game.
It should be emotional. Senior Day is a culmination about a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. These kids have put a lot into our program and the program owes them that amount of gratitude. I’ve been honored and blessed that their families have entrusted them to us and that we’ve had them for four years. All of our seniors are going to walk across the stage as graduates and they’re going to walk across as better people, as our job is to not only make them better players, but better people and students. I have no doubt that we’ve done that with this group.
Senior Tianna Tarter
On tying the school record and finishing with 23 points… “It’s amazing. It’s something I didn’t really plan to do. I felt good. I just came out ready to play and my teammates helped me. We knew that when we played down at Wofford, we came out slow, so we knew we had to come out strong today.”
On Saturday being Senior Day… “It’s going to be a little emotional, but we can’t let down against Furman. They are a good team, so we still have to do what we have to do. I’ll have to hold my emotions until after the game.”
Junior Raven Dean
“It was a good win. I think as a team, we showed a lot of effort. Collectively, we played together and played with a lot of passion.”
