Tigers v CCNY

Tigers v CCNY

After a strong 3-0 start the Tigers struggle to come up with a win as they lose four games in a row. The last two wins for the Tigers were Central Penn 52-28 and a close game against PSU Mont Alto 59-56.

The Tigers losses statistically have been a result of a low shooting percentage and higher than normal turnover rate. I was able to bring in Senior Guard, Kiana Graves to share some insight on what she thought contributed to the changes in the Tigers game and how they planned to improve.

I started by asking Kiana, “What has been the difference in the first three games and the last four games?” She stated, “The difference has been stamina with our small roster and I think we dug ourselves into a hole not only with our losses but mentally after winning three game following by losing four games in a row.

I followed by asking, “As a senior guard for Tigers what type of changes will the tigers need to make to end the losing streak?” Kiana said, “We need to put together a full forty minutes of basketball; we usually have a strong start but once we get tired we stop playing our game and make bad decisions with the ball.”

I said to Kiana, “There are two games left before winter break. How do you see the Tigers competitively against WAU (6-5) and MACU (3-4)?” She responded by saying, “For Washington Adventist we have to come out playing hard and our game which is smart basketball no matter their record. For MACU we can’t come out underestimating the opponent again no matter their record.”

Lastly, I had to ask the senior about the Tigers stats these last few games when I asked her did she have any comment on it she said, “It’s been hard with a lot of injuries and a short bench but I mostly think people are mentally checked out after losing and finals week is hunting us. So, there are many factors.”

We appreciate the inside scoop from the Senior Guard, Kiana Graves and hope that the Tigers win their two final games before the winter break. Good luck to the Tigers as finals week is approaching.

The Tiger will face Washington Adventist University on the Shock’s home court Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 7 PM.
