NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Former Bethel All-American Tay'la Foster has signed with the 2018 Music City Icons Professional Women's Basketball Team in Nashville. She played professionally in the WBCBL IN 2017. am. Tay'la started her basketball career at Tennessee State University and finished at Bethel University. At 5'10 she will play the small forward position. Tay'la is no stranger to the world of professional basketball as she played in the WBCBL league in 2017. When I watch Tay'la play she reminds me so much or a smooth operator. When she shoots a three or makes a basket down-low you can tell she is operating in her gifts. Come see Tay'la do work at our first game on Saturday, May 12th at 4:00 PM.
Foster was named to the First Team NAIA All-American team in 2015.Foster paced the SSAC—and the nation—in points per game (23.03) and points (737).

The Madisonville, Ky., native recorded seven double-doubles on the year and posted five of the top 10 single-game scoring performances in the SSAC during the season. She was selectedas the SSAC Player of the Year and also garnered a First-Team All-Conference nod.
She helped lead the Lady Wildcats to their best ever season at 32-4—with two of those four losses coming in postseason play. The Wildcats went 18-0 against conference opposition during the season, en route to the SSAC regular-season title. For the second straight year Bethel worked their way into an Elite Eight finish. The Lady Wildcats had a 24-game winning streak during the year, which is the longest in program history.
