The Lady Tigers team has also benefitted from record-breaking play from Preseason Player of the Year Shakayla Hill.


 Hill is averaging 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists per game. She also leads the SWAC conference in points, steals and assists per game. 


For the fourth time this season, Hill was selected as the SWAC Women’s Basketbal Player of the Week.


Hill recorded her first collegiate triple double against Southern University this season recording 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.


In 14-of-15 games this season, Hill has posted double figures in scoring.


Head coach Freddie Murray sits just six games shy of 50 wins for his collegiate career.
