Midwestern State's scheduled women's basketball game Thursday night against Texas Woman's University has been postponed due to inclement weather and potential of hazardous wintry conditions in the North Texas region.
The game will be rescheduled at a later date.
The Mustangs are scheduled to return to action Saturday, Dec. 14 against East Central (Okla.) at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m.
Midwestern State coach Noel Johnson announced the signing of prep standout Montoria Tripp to a National Letter of Intent Thursday afternoon.
"Tori has great knowledge of the game and can play the 1 or 2 positions," MSU coach Noel Johnson said. "She can fill any role we need her to fill in those positions."
Tripp, a 5-5 point guard, averaged 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and three assists a game while leading Frisco Heritage High School to its first postseason wins over Highland Park and Dallas Carter last season.
The four-year varsity starter coach Amy Justice was a unanimous District 9-4A first-team selection as a junior last season while garnering all-region honors from the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.
Tripp became the first Heritage High player to score 30 points in a game last season finishing with 30 points, seven steals, five rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot in a win over R.L. Turner High School.
"Her personality and mentality of doing whatever it takes to win. She is the prototypical Midwestern State women's basketball player," Johnson said. "She's a very smart and highly intelligent young lady and has some athleticism about her which allows her to finish at the rim. She can shoot the 3 and is a great facilitator."
Tripp earned All-State honors in track & field last spring and gained honorable mention as a sophomore on the hardwood.
Tripp plans to be a Pre-Medicine major at Midwestern State. She is the daughter of Michael and Kendra Tripp of Frisco.
