Florida A&M’s Lady Rattler’s basketball team (14-14,8-7, in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) stands a chance at winning MEAC in the 2011-2012 season.
Although Coppin State (12-17, 8-7 in MEAC) dealt the Lady Rattlers a tough, first-round home defeat in this year’s MEAC tournament, the team team gained experience for next year’s championship run. Only two players – Christian Rateree and Danielle Anderson – are graduating in April. Keeping the team’s core group of girls together builds good chemistry.
Antonia Bennett and Tameka McKelton both finished with All-MEAC first-team honors. they bring, scoring, rebounding, intelligence, toughness and experience to every game. Nether player appears phased when she enters the spotlight.
