UWG Bracing for Life on the Road
The University of West Georgia women's basketball team has played Delta State before, but this year the games will count toward its Gulf South Conference record instead of being played as conference crossover contests.
The Wolves begin their two-game road trip tonight in Cleveland, Miss., this evening at 7 p.m.
"We've actually played decent on the road. We won a couple tough road games at Montevallo and Augusta State. We're looking forward to playing both Delta and Christian Brothers," UWG women's coach Scott Groninger said. "Delta State, as usual, is very good. We're in good health and spirits and up to the task."
West Georgia (6-7, 1-1 GSC) split its conference openers at home last week and will look to improve its conference standing against the Lady Statesmen, who have won four of their last five ball games.
UWG senior Krystal Delph earned GSC Conference Player of the Week honors with her performance in last week's games. The senior captain averaged 16 points and eight rebounds, while playing 39.5 minutes as the Wolves went 1-1 to open conference play. Delph is the first Wolf to be honored since Ashley Huff in February of 2009.
