The University Heights Lady Blazers are gearing up for hoops season and head coach Derrick E. Hickman is ready to get going. Their season opener is Tuesday Nov. 29 as they host the Caldwell County Lady Tigers with tip off at 7:30 p.m.

“We’re going to work hard, our numbers are low, but I got some players that are returning, they’re young but they’ve been around a couple years and it helps out,” Hickman said. “I got a group of girls that’s been together for a couple years and it helps out, so I think we’ll be more tough offensively.”
