ISLANDERS TAKE PART IN LADY OSPREY CLASSIC

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women's basketball team will be taking part in the University of North Florida Lady Osprey Classic on Dec. 17 and 18 in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Islanders will take on Jacksonville State in the first game of the tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 17 at 4 p.m.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN 1230 AM KSIX with the call by Matt Hicks.

Jacksonville State comes into the contest with a record of 1-7. The Islanders hold a 3-0 advantage in the all-time series between the two teams. They last played on Nov. 27, 1999, with the Islanders coming out on top by a score of 73-56 in Corpus Christi.

On Thursday, Dec. 18, the Islanders will take on host team North Florida in a 6 p.m. game.

Jade Davis comes into the tournament averaging 12.4 points per game, good for eighth in the Southland Conference.
