The Jim Davis era of Tech women’s basketball officially begins tomorrow as Tech takes on Tennessee Wesleyan College at 6 p.m. at the Hooper Eblen Center.

Tomorrow’s game starts the quest for the 2013 Ohio Valley Conference championship. This is the first season at Tech for head coach Jim Davis and assistant coach Erin Batth.

“I think we have all the pieces to have a great season,” senior Kylie Cook said. “We are so excited about the new coaching staff.” 

Tech took on Lee University Monday night in an exhibition game.  It was a rough first half for Tech. Lee got off to an early lead for the first 10 minutes of the game until Tech took over. Tech played a clean first half, only committing four fouls. There were many ups and downs in a game filled with 10 lead changes with Tech leading at the half 39-32. 

Sophomores T’Keyah Williams and Diamond Henderson both shined for Tech. Williams had a double-double, contributing 12 points and 11 rebounds, while Henderson led the team in scoring with 13 points. 

The game came down to a final 3-point shot from Kellie Cook to put Tech over Lee, winning the game 71-66.

“We have a really good chance of winning it all this season.” Senior Kellie Cook said. “We are so excited and blessed to have the coaches and teammates that we have this season.

The action starts at 6 p.m. with the men’s game following immediately after.
