Sharp-Moore is joined by teammate Dionecia Warr who is among the leaders in the SCAC in scoring and rebounds. The sophomore averages 15.3 points per game – fourth in the conference - while averaging 6.5 rebounds per outing which ranks 11th.

Briana Edwards paces the Ladies on the glass. The Shreveport, La., product ranks second in the SCAC in rebounds with 9.2 per game.
