On November 9th the Tennessee State University’s Men’s basketball team fell short to University of Tennessee Chattanooga in their second game of the 2019-2020 season. The game took place in Chattanooga in McKenzie Arena. Going into halftime with a four point lead the tigers ended up scoring a total of 57 points while the Mocs scored 59.
The tiger’s offense was led by redshirt sophomore guard Carlos Marshall Jr. who scored 16 points. Marshall also led the team in scoring in their blowout win against Alabama A&M for the first game of the season in Gentry Center.
TSU now has an overall record of 1-1 and will prepare to take on Lipscomb on November 10th in Allen Arena at 7 o’clock. Putting last year’s overall record of 9-21 behind him, 2nd year head coach Penny Collins and his newly constructed team are determined to string up way more wins and will start conference play on January 4th.
They will play plenty of games in between now and then that should better help them prepare for the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC). Collins goal is to make the Gentry Center the toughest place to play in the OVC.
