2018-19 Texas Southern WBB Season Preview

Texas Southern has played in the postseason the past two years and last season missed out sharing the SWAC league title by one win. This year’s team will have a different look with 11 newcomers to offset the loss of guard Joyce Kennerson, last year’s SWAC Player of the Year, who is taking a medical redshirt. Four graduate students include guards Marquia Turner, who played her first three years at Xavier, and Toledo transfer Olivia Cunningham.

2018-19 Texas Southern MBB Season Preview

Mike Davis built TSU into the SWAC’s most elite program, and now it’s former LSU head coach Johnny Jones assigned to continue the progression. The Tigers are coming off a season in which they won a First Four game in the NCCA Tournament for the first time. Trayvon Reed returns at center but Trae Jefferson, last year’s SWAC Player of the Year, transferred out. LSU graduate transfers Jalyn Patterson and Jeremy Combs will play key roles.
