    Teague beat out Sharon Blade of Illinois State, Kinga Kiss of Southwest Missouri State and Kristy Thomann of Indiana State for the honor. The only other time a Saluki woman has won this award was in 1995 when Cari Hassell was awarded both Newcomer and Freshman of the Year awards as well as being named to the All-Newcomer team.

    This past season Teague was tops on the Salukis with 117 assists while averaging 9.4 points and 3.2 rebounds a game in playing a team-high 34.4 minutes a game. In the MVC Teague was ranked fourth overall in assists.

    The Poplar Bluff, Missouri native came to SIU from Three Rivers Community College where she was first-team All-Region and All-Conference while averaging 20 points and five assists a game. At Poplar Bluff High School, Teague was a four-time All-District player as well as being second-team All-State and All-Conference. She is the daughter of Brad and Deana Teague and has one sister, Heather.

    In addition, center Kristine Abramowski was named honorable mention on the MVC Scholar-Athlete Women?s Basketball Team. The senior from Freeport, Illinois posted a 3.01 GPA in Elementary Education.
