The UNC Asheville women's basketball team will host Radford Tuesday night (Feb. 5) in a crucial Big South Conference contest. Let's go back and look at last year's championship game between these two teams.
 
The UNC Asheville women's basketball team entered the 2017 title game looking to do what it had been picked to do at the start of the year and what it had done a year ago – win a Big South Championship. To do it, they would have to do something that had never been done before.
 
The Bulldogs had a roller-coaster 2016-17 season. Injuries would slow Asheville down and they started before the year began when forward Tiffany Wilson suffered a knee injury and would miss the entire campaign.
 
Then early in league play, senior guard Ja'Da Brayboy went out with a knee injury and was lost for the rest of the season. A week later, leading scorer Tianna Knuckles, would suffer a season-ending knee injury that would cause her to miss the rest of the year.
 
Not only those injuries but then second leading scorer Khaila Webb would go down with an injury and miss some games.
