Lakers Host Limestone Tonight for a Trip to San Antonio
The run-up to a second national title in three years concludes its local action tonight as he number one-ranked Clayton State Lakers host the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional finals, tipping off against eight-ranked Limestone College at 7 p.m. in the Athletics & Fitness Center. The official capacity of the building is only around 1200, so it would be a good idea to come early. The winner will advance to the Division II Elite Eight in San Antonio next week.
The 31-0 Lakers reached the final Saturday night with their third consecutive win over 25th-ranked USC Aiken, this time by an 83-66 score, as senior Kayla Mobley set a career high with 26 points. With the Pacers determined to shut down National Player of the Year candidate Drameka Griggs (who had 10 assists), the Lakers went inside and out against the Pacer zone, as junior center Shay Jackson scored 17 and junior guard Bena Hanyard added 15.
Unless you’re up for a road trip to San Antonio, this will be your last chance to see seniors Shannon Smith, Keona Dixon, Mobley and Griggs in action live.
