The Lady Tigers will honor their three seniors between the women’s and men’s games Thursday. ECU will honor seniors Regan Browne, Lindsay McCown and Kodi Morrison.
Regan Making Waves
Senior Regan Browne had a strong outing at Arkansas-Monticello, setting season bests for points (18), field-goals made (5), three-point field-goals made (2) and free-throws made (6).
Sophomore Taylor Fischer came off the bench for the Lady Tigers in the first half at Southern Arkansas and hit her first three triple attempts. She ended the game with a career-best 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting from three-point range.
The Lady Tigers 65-57 win over Henderson State at the Kerr Activities Center was a special game for head coach Kent Franz, who earned his 300th career victory. Franz is now 303-296 in his 22 seasons as the head coach for ECU.
Across the Board
For what is believed to be the first time in school history, ECU has 7-of-8 players who saw action against Southeastern score at least 10 points. Senior Kodi Morrison and sophomore Dilan Webster led the team with 17 points each, with sophomore Erin Walling adding 16. Junior Ashley Robison contributed 11 and sophomore Taylor Fischer, junior Alex Tucker and senior Regan Browne all netted 10.
The Lady Tigers were on a roll, winning nine-straight games from Dec. 1, 2012-Jan. 12, 2013. The winning streak is the second longest in school history. The longest winning streak in school history is 13 games from Jan. 18, 1989 to Feb. 28, 1989.
Sophomore Dilan Webster earned her first GAC Player of the Week award for Jan. 14. Webster started the week off with her second double-double of the season with 17 points and a season-best 11 rebounds at Northwestern Oklahoma State.
The Oklahoma City, Okla., native then led the Lady Tigers to victory over Southwestern Oklahoma State, with a career-best 31 points. She recorded the first 30-point game for an ECU player since Dec. 5, 2009 when Danielle Cox tallied 31 against Eastern New Mexico. The win also broke a four-game losing streak to the Lady Bulldogs.
