Tigers huddle during timeout.

The Trinity Tigers start their season off with a win in an exhibition game against the College of Southern MD. Last season the Tigers struggled winning only 5 of their 19 games. With the Tigers facing many of the same teams this season they plan to seek redemption.

Trinity basketball coaching staff had many difficult decisions to make regarding the game plan going into the scrimmage with #12 for the College of Southern MD scoring 41 points earlier that week and the Tigers only having four returning players to start the new season.

The Tigers proved to have the winning strategy playing an aggressive defense protecting the three-point line and outrebounding the Hawks defensively. On the offensive end Senior, Kiana Graves had a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds as well as Senior, Zuri Wells with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Freshman, Londyn Wooten also contributed a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. The final score for the game was 62-59.

The Tigers travel to their first away game against Central Penn on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 8:00PM in PA. Meet us back at home for our home-opener against PSU Mont Alto on Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7:00PM. Pregame festivities for the home-opener will start at 5PM outside of the Trinity Center.  Follow Trinity Athletics on Twitter @TrinityDCTigers for game footage, photos, and updates.
