After a season-opening 62-20 loss at No. 5 Baylor, the UT Arlington women’s basketball team will host its next two games in the preseason WNIT consolation bracket, starting with Friday’s matchup against Jacksonville (0-1).
Tip-off at College Park Center is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. following the McNeese State-Dartmouth game at 5 p.m.
I want to see us have as much confidence on offense as we have on defense.
UTA coach Krista Gerlich
Jacksonville is a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference and dropped its first-round WNIT matchup last week 74-52 to South Florida. The Dolphins return all five starters from last year’s 12-17 campaign.
Never miss a local story.
The winner plays the winner of McNeese State-Dartmouth at 7:15 p.m. Saturday at College Park Center. The losers will play at 5 p.m.
“I want to see us have as much confidence on offense as we have on defense,” UTA coach Krista Gerlich said. “We’ve got to work on chemistry, timing and when people are going to be open in the offense, and look to push the ball more in transition.”
