ISLANDERS TRAVEL TO TAKE ON TEXAS-PAN AMERICAN

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women's basketball team gets back into the swing of things on Saturday night as they travel to take on Texas-Pan American in a non-conference game in Edinburg at 7 p.m.

The Islanders are 2-5 on the season and have not played since a Dec. 2 game against SMU in Dallas.

After some time off for rest and for school obligations, the Islanders return to the court looking to snap the current two game skid they are on. Myeisha Myles comes into the game scoring 11.6 points per game and grabbing 8.9 rebounds per game, both which lead the team. Myles is coming off her first career double-double at SMU, where she 10 points and pulled down a career-high 17 rebounds.

The Islanders and Broncs last faced off on Feb. 2 of last season, with TAMUCC coming out on top of a 60-57 decision. Sarah Davidson scored 10 points in that game and is the top returning scorer from that game for the Islanders.

The game will be broadcast on 1150 AM KCCT with the call by Matt Hicks.

After the Islanders take on the Broncs, they will be seeing significant time on the road, playing in back-to-back tournaments at the UNF Lady Osprey Classic and the Georgia State Invitational.
