The Saluki Women’s Basketball team is gearing up for their season at SIU Arena. The Dawgs are coming off of a 20-13 record last season, but should get a significant from redshirt freshman Tiajaney Hawkins. Hawkins was injured last season after just five games but has made a full recovery and will be ready to play.
With the loss of Dyana Pierre and Cartaesha Macklin, the Salukis are short on seniors. SIU has just three seniors this year including redshirt senior Rishonda Napier, who will be placed in a much needed leadership role. Napier has been named to the First-Team All-MVC each of the past two seasons.
