Due to Samford entering COVID protocols, Tuesday’s (Dec 21) scheduled game between the Tennessee Tech women and the visiting Bulldogs has been canceled.
Attempts were made to find a replacement opponent for Tuesday afternoon, but no games were available at the time.
“We are disappointed we will not be able to play one last home game against a quality nonconference opponent in Samford,” said Tech women’s basketball head coach Kim Rosamond. “I know both teams were looking forward to this game, and there is tremendous respect between our two programs. We certainly understand the challenging circumstances we all continue to navigate and deal with surrounding COVID, and we wish Samford and their team all the best as they move forward in their season.”
“Our players have shown tremendous resilience and growth over the last six weeks, and I am excited with the improvements in our play the last three games. This was, by far, our most difficult non-conference schedule. I love that the early schedule has provided us with the opportunity to be battle-tested as we open up OVC play on the road against the most-improved team in the league in Tennessee State and a talented, veteran Murray State team who is off to one of their best starts in program history. We look forward to the journey ahead.”
The cancellation marks a year to the day for the last game canceled for the Tech women’s team, a Dec. 21, 2020, deletion against Mercer. Tech also had games against Samford, UAB and Vanderbilt erased in the 2020-21 campaign.
The Golden Eagles will wrap up the pre-conference slate with a 5-5 record and begin their holiday break. Tech’s next action will be Thursday, December 30, as the Golden Eagles travel to Nashville to take on Tennessee State at the Gentry Center.
The next home game for the Tech women will be Thursday, January 6, against Morehead State. Tipoff is slated for 5:30 p.m.
