Best of the Season

Belle Basketball

   In the first year under Head Coach Kevin Baker, no one knew what to expect aside from a better 2015-2016 season. Baker delivered a much better season and exceeded expectations. With a win over Division I opponent Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, it was obvious Baker was here for the long run. The consensus opinion was solidified when the Belles defeated WTAMU not once, not twice, but three times en route to their first LSC tournament title since 2005. Following the championship, the Belles earned a bid to the NCAA tournament where they defeated Colorado School of Mines for their first playoff victory in 10 years before No.1 ranked Lubbock Christian ended the Belles’ season in the second round as the Belles finished 24-8 on the season. The Belles managed to break personal bests and university records from game one. Low expectations were quickly destroyed when the Belles beat Arlington Baptist University’s Lady Patriots on Nov. 17 with a final score of 108-67. This was the first game since 2000 that the Belles scored 100 in a single game.
