SIU's women's basketball team can boast one of the Missouri Valley Conference's top centers, but now the team can boast about a center for the future.
SIU added depth and versatility to its roster with one of the team's new signings. 5-foot-10-inch Tiajaney Hawkins, or Nae for short, offers SIU a player who can swing back-and-forth from the guard and forward positions, and she can do it very well.
The SIU women's basketball team is building a culture accustomed to winning; and with one of its new recruits, the team can do just that. Incoming 5-foot-9-inch freshman guard Olivia Bowling played her high school hoops at Elizabethtown High School in New Haven, Ky., one of the nation's top-high school varsity basketball programs.
Saluki women's basketball has named Adesuwa Ebomwonyi as its new graduate assistant and video coordinator, SIU head coach Cindy Stein announced Wednesday.
