Head Coach Tanya Allen said now is not the time to panic with only four LSC matches remaining.

“It was a tough weekend against two strong teams. We just have to stay focused and continue to get better everyday. Hopefully we can get a good crowd at the games this weekend and really use our home court advantage,” Allen said.

The Javelinas return to Hampton Inn Court on Friday, Nov. 8 for a crucial  LSC matchup against the Texas A&M Commerce Lions.

With only four conference games left, this is the time of season where teams start to feel the urgency to win. I just want to make sure that urgency doesn’t turn to panic. We have all the tools; we just need to stay focused on the little things,” Allen said.
