Other important information about your team this year:  Along with Nijah Davis (6’, Jr.,forward, Sumter SC/Sumter HS), the other key returning players are Kyari Sloan (6’, Sr., Post, Greenville, SC/Southside HS), Ladahza Cole (5’4”, So., guard, Sumter, SC/Crestwood HS), D'Ariel Walker (5’6”, Jr., guard, Augusta, GA/Butler HS), Lashaya Clark from nearby Bamberg, SC (5’10, Jr., forward/guard, Bamberg-Erhardt HS) and Je'nayah Moore (5'9" guard/forward, Denmark, SC) who can play multiple positions can give the Lady Tigers a much needed boost if she can come back after taking a year off from basketball. Davis will have to take her game to another level, play with a high energy and become a bona fide leader. Sloan will need to be solid at the post especially on the defensive end. Cole, D. Walker and Clark should see more time on the court and will be counted on in the rotation. Coach Glover is entering his 17th season at the helm and the VC Lady Tigers will again face another challenging schedule.
