VALDOSTA, GA- A new year offers a fresh start for the VSU women's basketball team. The first twelve games for the Lady Blazers have been a seesaw of emotions.
VSU women's head basketball coach Kiley Hill says,
"We're on a teeter toter edge. We've been in every game, we've had leads in every game, but just not able to finish the deal. That's part of being young. We've had some issues with injuries and eligibility. Just all things kind of a turmoil at time."
Through the first twelve games Valdosta State sits at (5-7), the same record the Lady Blazers had at this point last season. After which, VSU racked up seventeen straight wins to go undefeated in the Gulf South Conference and win the East division.
VSU junior forward Brittany Ferguson adds,
"We always know that the past is the past and this is a brand new team so we can look at that for inspiration but we know that at the ed of the day we need to come together and make our goals and make sure that we achieve them together.
VSU junior guard Sczeny Hartry adds,
"It's really important for us to lock down during conference so it's better for us to go through these up and downs now than to get into conference and be struggling."
Kiley Hill adds,
"If we go do what we need to get done, people will forget all about November and December and concentrate on January and February."
VSU has one final non-conference game with Albany State before opening Gulf South Conference play against North Alabama.
