MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Head coach Rick Insell and the Blue Raider women's basketball team returns home Friday for a 7 p.m. contest against the Chattanooga Lady Mocs at Murphy Center after a 2-0 road trip last weekend.

The Blue Raiders won both games at the Subway Classic in Minneapolis, Minn., defeating Maine and host Minnesota. Senior Chrissy Givens and junior Starr Orr both were named to the All-Tournament team, and Givens was voted the Sun Belt Player of the Week after netting 23 and 25 points in the two contests.

Chattanooga ended a four-game Middle Tennessee winning streak in the series last season with a 76-66 victory in Chattanooga in the season-opener for both teams last season.

Junior Amber Holt continues to lead the Blue Raiders in both points (20.0) and rebounds (7.8), while Givens is right behind in both categories with 19.8 points and 7.5 boards per outing.

After Friday's contest against Chattanooga, the Blue Raiders take on fourth-ranked Tennessee Sunday at 3 p.m. CT at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville.
