Tallahassee, Fla.,(www.franchisesportsonline.net) – The Tallahassee Community College Lady Eagles basketball team 2018-2019 season is just around the corner.  Expectations are very high this year, as the ladies of TCC are the defending national champions.  

The Lady Eagles will make their scrimmage debut on Oct. 6 for the Southeast JUCO Jamboree in Albany, Ga.  The first regular season game will take place in Tallahassee for the Seals Financial Tip-off Classic on Nov. 3.  The ladies will be facing the Central Georgia Technical College Titans. 

The Titans had a strong season last season, finishing 22-10, but their woes on the road haunted them all year long.  They were 7-7 away from their home arena.  On the flip side, TCC was 29-6 overall with a 10-2 home record. 

The Eagles could be a very strong team if everything goes as planned.  The team was very young last season, comprised of 11 freshmen and four sophomores.  A year of experience and a national championship under its belt makes this squad one to look out for in the 2018-2019 season.  TCC has also reloaded with some talented, young freshmen in addition to returning players.  These ladies are primed to make another run this year.

Aliyah Lawson  Guard  Freshman  5-6  Whitby, ONT, Canada / Sinclair Secondary School
