While the Lady Aggies are missing their two big scorers due to injury, the team is doing well with the dominant first year player Tiffanie Adair.
Adair is a new to the team but is no stranger in outshining her oppponents.
In high school she competed at the varsity level for four years.
As a sophomore Adair has been putting up big numbers and contributing many minutes to help her team attain their goal of winning.
A player not on scholarship, Adair was inspired to try out for the team this season and because of her love for the game.
She also wanted to return to the game of basketball because she loves the family oriented team including the coaches and players that make being a part of the team great.
“She’s undersized in the post but a monster,” said head coach Patricia Cage-Bibbs.
“Adair is a coachable kid and that is what you want.”
Adair has been named by the MEAC, rookie of the week twice.
“I am very honored,” said Adair. “I just have to keep working.”
Wearing number 23, Adair has played 347 minutes in 20 games, has scored a total of 104 points and has 94 rebounds combined on offense and defense.
Bibbs described Adair as having a “quiet demeanor but on the floor she is aggressive, a rebounder, and a force on the inside.”
In having good stats in her first year she is 16-42 in free throw shooting.
In regards to team free throws Bibbs said, “Free throws are something we work on and need to spruce up.”
When it comes to free throw shooting Adair knows that they are a crucial part of the game. “They affect me so much, believe it or not I work on them all the time. They can be a big difference in the game,” said Adair.
Adair’s personal goals are to get better and to keep working to improve in order to end the season with a bang.
Adair along with the rest of the lady Aggies are gearing up for the next three games in which they will host S.C. State and Savannah State.
The last home game of the three-game series will be playing against rival N.C. Central.
