UTM Women Fall to Belmont

 UTM Women Fall to Belmont

It was a tough loss for the University of Tennessee at Martin women Monday night as an inexperienced Skyhawk squad came up short against Belmont 45 to 39.

With many key team members out due to injury, UTM fought to hold the typically high scoring Bruins to only 45 points throughout the contest. The Skyhawks led at the half by a single point (17-16), but ran out of gas with a limited rooster to fall by 6.

The UTM women’s record dropped to 7-15 overall and 4-7 in the OVC.

Head Coach Kevin McMillian felt his team gave their all despite the absence of key players.

The UTM women are on the road next, traveling to SIU Edwardsville. You can hear the broadcast on 1410 WCMT-AM Thursday at 10:30.
