Preseason MIAAPoll:  The Missouri Southern women's basketball teamwas picked to finish ninth in both the coaches and media poll as the MIAAreleased its preseason polls October 24. Southern returns eightletterwinners from a year ago, including five seniors and fourstarters while also welcoming in a talented crop of newcomers.Unfortunately, the injury bug has bite the Lions early this season as seniorguard JoleeSharp went down with an injury in preseason practice and will be out forthe season. Playing in all 27 games a year ago with 18 starts, Sharp averaged6.1 ppg and 2.9 rpg while leading the team in three-pointers made (24) andattempted (71). Also out for the early part of the season will be senior guard TeeSingleton, who led the Lions in minutes played, assists and steals lastyear.

1st Seasons: Interim Head coach RondaHubbard enters her first year at the helm of the women's team, but sheis very familiar with the program as she has spent the previous 12years as the associate head coach helping the Lions compile a 189-145record and make 11 trips to the MIAA Tournament. 

Drury is in asimilar situation as the Lions as they also welcome a new head coachto the fold in Steve Huber. Coming to Springfield after spending the lastseven years as the top assistant and recruiting coordinator of Division ICreighton, Huber has also coached at Louisville, San Diego State andCentral Missouri. He spent five years as the head coach at Benedicting College(Kan.) from 1994-99, guiding the Ravens to three NAIA nationaltournament appearances, two conferene titles and a 108-55record.  

New Faces (coachedition): Longtime men's associate head coach Ronnie Ressel hasmoved over to women's program this year and will be joined by new assistantcoach Victor Esparza who comes to Southern from Oklahoma Panhandle State.

ScoutingDrury:Led by first-year head coach Steve Huber, the Lady Panthers arecoming off a 14-13 season in 2012-13 that saw them finish with a winning recordfor the 13th consecutive year, but not make the NCAA Tournament for just thethird time in the program's 13-year history. The Lady Panthers return two oftheir top scorers in seniors in Bethanie Funderburk and Kylie Williamson whoare expected to provide plenty of scoring punch while they also welcome in apair of post players in senior Amber Dvorak, a transfer from Big TenMinnesota and freshman Hannah Dressler.
