It is not over yet.
That is the sentiment of the Commerce Lady Tigers, as the team prepares for the final game of the regular season against visiting Athens Christian.
While the Lady Tigers hope to end the season on a high note, the odds don’t look good.
Athens Christian defeated Commerce earlier in the season 40-14. But coach Eddie McCurley said that teams are more evenly matched than the numbers indicate.
“We want to compete and play well,” McCurley said. “They are very physical but we feel we match up better. There should not be any quit in anybody. It is just not in our vocabulary.”
Friday’s game will provide the Lady Tigers with a shot at the sixth seed in the region tourney.
“We have to fight the whole way to the finish,” said McCurley. “You get in the tournament and you don’t know what is going to happen.”
Regardless of what lies ahead of Commerce in the region tournament, the ladies have to make it through Friday. Tip-off is at 6:00 p.m.
