UAH Chargers hoops teams play two conference games this week
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Only 11 games remain within the Gulf South Conference schedule for the UAH Chargers basketball programs.
The men’s team enters the week at 9-4 in league play, just one and half games out of first place. The UAH women’s teams aims to finish the second half of the season on a high note after a 3-10 start in league play.
“They’ve been thrown in a little bit,” UAH women’s head coach Andrea Lemmond said. “Knowing they would be thrown in, with these young ones [are] getting this much playing time, we’ve seen so many good things, it’s just about getting them all on the same page on the same day.”
The UAH women’s team is led by Haley Nichols, who is averaging 11.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
The UAH men’s team lost to Auburn-Montgomery, 83-78, on Jan. 14. In that game, the Chargers had four players score in double figures, led by Guntersville, Alabama, native CJ Williamson with 16 points.
“Last year if we were 14-5 I would have been thrilled,” UAH men’s head coach John Schulman said. “This year we’re 14-5 and I’m like, ‘meh’. So, am I comfortable? No I’m not comfortable. Do I want more? Absolutely. Am I trying to find the right buttons to push with this basketball team that we haven’t pushed yet? Absolutely.
“We’re not there yet. It’s exciting because we’re not even close to playing our best basketball,” Schulman added.
