New Season/New Beginning
After a 2011-12 season where ECU finished 5-21 overall and 2-14 in GAC play, the 2012-13 season will be a season of new beginnings. The head coach will be familiar, but the student-athletes on the court will have a new look, as the Tigers return one player from 2011-12 and will have 15 new players on the court.
Second-year head coach Mac McConnell is looking to turn the program around and get it back to winning. Only this season he had the opportunity to pick his own players and will be able to mold the group into his style of play.
The Tigers will remain at home for the annual Hall of Fame game, Saturday, Feb. 2 when they host Ouachita Baptist. The men’s game will start 20 minutes after the conclusion of the Hall of Fame ceremony that will take place between the women’s and men’s games.
