Any question whether Nate Teymer's been worth the hire at Augusta State? The women's basketball coach inherited a one-win team with a losing attitude and he's threatening to turn them into a winner in year three.
The Lady Jags are off to a 4-0 start for the second time in his three seasons, but don't expect this one to finish like the first.
That year, ASU won just four games the rest of the way. Now, the tools are there, and it's time for the ladies to get the job done.
Guard Jemimah Ashby said, "You can't get happy with just a couple wins because you can look back at the year, and a couple wins means nothing. So, even though this feels good right now, we're just focused on the Peach Belt because that's when the competition really starts. That's when it really matters."
Teymer added, "Hopefully with our six seniors they can go with experience and they understand that these teams are talented, but it's still Peach Belt Conference. It's night in and night out, and I think if they can just taste a little bit of success I think they can built off it. Right now I think they've got a little taste of it, so hopefully they want to keep doing it and keep improving."
Augusta State gets a tougher match Wednesday night when they host Benedict. The Lady Tigers are usually one of the best in the SIAC.
