ETSU women’s hoops suffers first road loss since season opener

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Feb. 4, 2023) – ETSU women’s basketball began the second half of its Southern Conference schedule on Saturday, falling at in-state rival Chattanooga by a 73-62 final inside McKenzie Arena.

The Bucs — now 17-7 overall and 4-4 in league play — saw a pair of impressive streaks come to an end on Saturday, including a four-game win streak in conference play and a six-game win streak on the road. ETSU’s last true road loss came in the season opener against defending national champion and top-ranked South Carolina.

Chattanooga took an early lead and retained it with strong three-point shooting, going over 50 percent behind the arc (9-17) and 50 percent from the floor (25-50). Despite the loss, ETSU had a 36-22 advantage in paint scoring.

Today marked ETSU’s first loss this season when shooting above 40 percent from the field, finishing 23-56  for 41.1 percent. Previously, the Bucs were 11-0 when shooting above 40. The Bucs were also 4-12 from behind the arc today — all makes coming in the second half.

Four ETSU players finished in double figures. Graduate guard Jiselle Thomas (Norwalk, Ohio) had 19 points — including 11 in the third quarter, while Jakhyia Davis (Knoxville, Tenn.) had 15 points for her highest single-game total since conference play started in January.

Sophomore guards Nevaeh Brown (Charlotte, N.C) and Kendall Folley (Lebanon, Ohio) combined for 23 points in the effort. Both players also had three assists each.

Chattanooga’s scoring and assist leader was post Raven Thompson with 19 points and five helpers.

The Bucs remain on the road next week with stops in Birmingham to face Samford on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. ET and in Macon to face Mercer on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m.
