The Tigers opened the Women’s Basketball Season with hope after finishing in second place the prior year.  Unfortunately, that hope turned sour by the end of the season, finishing with a losing conference record for the first time since the 1991-1992 season.  Coach Scott Carter returned for his third year leading the Tigers.

The Tigers opened the conference season on December 11 against Roosevelt.  The Tiger defense limited the Teddies to only 22 points.  The offense more than doubled that of Roosevelt, winning 50-22.  South then took on Washburn.  This game was much closer, but the Tigers pulled out a six-point win, 52-46.

The powerhouse Polars were next.  Over the past two season, North averaged over 80 points a game.  The Tigers held the North scoring machine to only 69 points.  However, the Polar defense held the Tigers to only 30 points. 

The Tigers returned to their winning ways defeating Edison 51-48.  From this point on, the Tigers would only win two more games.  Southwest beat the Tigers by 14, 44-30.  South then beat Henry 49-29. The game against Roosevelt was a close six-point event, with the Teddies winning in the end 41-35.  The last Tiger conference win was against Washburn, 56-36.

The Tigers again played North and again held the Polars to only 69 points.  But the Polar defense was too much for the Tigers.  The Tigers only scored 24.  Edison gained revenge for their prior loss, winning by the slimmest 41-40 margin.  Southwest the beat the Tigers.  No score was reported.  Henry then gained revenge for their prior loss with a three-point 62-59 win.  The Tigers finished with a 5-7 record in conference

In non-conference play, South had a 4-6 record.  South victories were over St. Paul Como Park, 56-40, St. Paul Highland Park, 58-53, Princeton, 43-33, and Totino Grace, 51-50.

Non-conference losses were to St. Paul Central, 63-30, St.Louis Park, 69-40, Richfield, 51-41, Robbinsdale Cooper, 51-45, Elk River, 88-23, and St. Francis, 54-29.
