Win vs. McMurry a big one for HPU women

BCH Sports

The Howard Payne Lady Jackets are in the midst of the first year of the Yannick Denson era. 

Denson and the Lady Jackets picked up an important victory on Saturday. 

They came from behind to beat McMurry at Kimbrell Arena for their third win in the American Southwest Conference this season. 

Denson says he can see his team getting better every time they hit the court. 

Denson said, “I think the character of this team is slowly but surely being exposed to the public. Seeing the experience of the close games and how we play them and how we handle them as players and coaching staff, I think that makes a difference as a team. Our overall team identity has been upped a little bit, especially getting one on the road and getting the win. We’re fully capable of doing a lot of things here in the near future to put ourselves in better positions for the conference tournament, but also as well as building character and making sure these young ladies understand that every night is an opportunity for us to grow as a team and also go out there and be victorious.”

The Lady Jackets continue ASC play on Thursday night. 

They host Mary Hardin-Baylor at the Brownwood Coliseum at 5:30 p.m.
