Tiger women’s soccer set for AAC tournament

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Memphis Tiger women’s soccer team will open its quest for the American Athletic Conference Tournament Championship Thursday at 2 p.m. against the Cincinnati Bearcats at Tampa, Florida.

After blanking East Carolina in the final regular season game Sunday, the 17th-ranked Tigers landed two players on the AAC best list with junior Caroline Duncan named Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

She also assisted on the game’s lone goal -- a shot by senior Clarissa Larissey for the game winner.

Larissee was also named to the AAC honor role.

The Tigers are the No. 2 seed in the league tournament.
