Lady Tigers ready to take on Arkansas-Monticello

Ada —  

The Game

After two weeks off, the East Central University women’s basketball team will return to Wayne Cobb Court at the Kerr Activities Center, Thursday, Jan. 3 for a 5:30 p.m. tip-off with Arkansas-Monticello.  The game is the first of 2013 and two-straight in Ada.

 

The Broadcast

ECU’s radio home for Lady Tigers basketball in 2012-13 is Ada’s KXFC, 105.5, FM ‘The X-Factor’. Kenny Morrison returns to broadcast the games for his 15th consecutive season. Morrison, a 1987 ECU graduate, spent two seasons doing color prior to taking over the play-by-play duties during the 1997-98 season.

Fans who can’t be at the game can find links to live stats, live video (if available) and the KXFC radio broadcast on ECUTigers.com.  Go to the women’s basketball schedule page.

 

Scouting Arkansas-Monticello

The Cotton Blossoms are 2-7 overall and 0-4 in the Great American Conference and have lost their last seven games.  UAM’s last game was Dec. 18 when they were defeated, 41-79, at Northeastern.

The Cotton Blossoms have one player who is averaging double digits in the point’s column this season and five more that are netting 7-9 points per game.  Donlicia James is the team’s go-to shooter with 11.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

UAM may have a losing record, but they are not falling too far behind their opponents in games.  The Cotton Blossoms are averaging just -4.4 points and -4.7 boards per game.  Their biggest disadvantage is in shooting percentages.  UAM trails the opposition .383 to .420 from the field and .266 to .310 from beyond the arc.

 

Against the Cotton Blossoms

Last season the Lady Tigers and UAM split the season series, with each team winning on the road.

Ashley Robison and Dilan Webster led the offensive charge for ECU.  Robison tallied 17.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game, while shooting .500 from the field and .571 from three-point range.  Webster added 10 points and six boards per game.
