Lady Bisons 2014-15 schedule includes matchup with Lady Vols

Lady Bison basketball released the competitive 2014-2015 schedule on Aug. 20.

The highlight of the schedule for fans will be the game on Dec. 7 against the Tennessee Lady Vols at Allen Arena. “Hosting Tennessee at home is exciting,” red-shirt junior Danay Fothergill said. “We want to look at it as just another game. We want to use our advantages to be competitive and just have fun.”

The regular season tips off Nov. 14 with Georgia Southern and Nov. 16 against Wright State. Both non-conference games will be played in Allen Arena.

The highly anticipated Battle of the Boulevard matchup will be played Dec. 2 at Belmont.

Before ending the non-conference schedule, the Lady Bisons will travel to Ohio to face Xavier on Dec. 20. After the Christmas holidays, Lipscomb takes on Georgia Tech in Atlanta Dec. 29. On Jan. 5 in Allen Arena, Trevecca will be the last team the Lady Bisons play before Atlantic Sun Conference play begins.

The last 14 games on the regular season are A-Sun matchups. “We just want to make sure we end non-conference play after Christmas with energy going into conference,” Fothergill said.

Jan. 10 starts conference play against Northern Kentucky in Allen Arena. The Lady Bisons are ready to show they belong in the stacked A-Sun conference.

The first real A-Sun test may come on Jan. 29 against Florida Gulf Coast in Allen Arena. “Florida Gulf Coast brings a lot to the conference and are always a tough matchup,” Fothergill said. “We have something to prove and are ready to show what we have been working on.”

The last three out of four regular season games will be played at Allen Arena including North Florida on Feb. 19, Jacksonville on Feb. 21 and USC Upstate on Feb. 25. The Lady Bisons’ last regular season game will be played in Kennesaw, Ga. against Kennesaw State on Feb. 28. All conference games can be watched on ESPN3.

“We are really concentrating on defense and working together as a team right now,” Fothergill said. “I know we will be prepared when the season starts, and I am excited to see what we accomplish.”
