Lady Tigers ready to take on Arkansas-Monticello

(Continued)

Ada —

 

Dilan Doubling Down

Sophomore Dilan Webster had a standout game for ECU against Ouachita Baptist.  The Oklahoma City, Okla., native tallied her third career double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds.  She also set career highs for her three assists, four blocks and seven field goals.

 

Winning on the Road

ECU has already earned four wins on the road, which is three more than the 2011-12 campaign.  The total surpasses the 2010-11 mark of two road wins, with the next highest total in recent years, being five away wins in 2009-10.

 

Spreading to Offense Around

All nine players that are playing this season are averaging at least three points per game, with only two members of the team garnering double-digits in the points column.  All nine are also averaging at least two rebounds per outing.

 

Starting on a Winning Note

For the first time since the 2008-09 campaign, the Lady Tigers have started the season with a win in the opening game after they defeated SGU, 69-51 (Nov. 10).

 

GAC Preseason Poll

The Lady Tigers were picked to finish seventh in the annual Great American Conference Preseason Poll, as voted on by the league’s coaches.

ECU, who finished with an 8-19 overall mark a season ago, earned 22 points and tied with Arkansas-Monticello for seventh.  Harding earned the top spot in the poll with 59 points and five first-place votes.  Arkansas Tech finished second (58/3) and Southwestern Oklahoma State was third (54/1), rounding out the teams receiving first-place votes.  Henderson State was picked fourth (39), Ouachita Baptist was fifth (34), Southeastern Oklahoma State was sixth (27) and Southern Arkansas rounded out the field in ninth (9).  Northwestern Oklahoma State and Southern Nazarene were not included on the preseason ballot due to their provisional membership in the conference.  However, games played against the two schools will count as GAC games this season.
