Fightin' Maiden Hoops: Tia Fuller scores triple double in win over Rusk

Jan. 11—Tia Fuller is only a sophomore, but she played like a seasoned veteran Tuesday night in Rusk where her Jacksonville Fightin' Maidens bombed the Lady Eagles, 72-23.

Fuller chalked up a rare triple-double in the Maidens' latest victory. She dumped in 21 points, snatched down 13 rebounds and had 11 assists, according to the official team statistics. And, let's not forget about the six steals that she came up with as well.

Fuller battled through a lower extremity injury earlier this season, which resulted in her starting out slow.

She certainly appears to be in tip-top shape now.

Jacksonville (19-8, 2-0) will host Bullard (18-6, 2-0) at 6:15 p.m. Friday in a key District 16-4A test. The Lady Panthers own conference wins over Palestine and Hudson, while Jacksonville has defeated Hudson and Rusk.
