4 NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES | 65 ALL-CONFERENCE PLAYERS | 43 ACADEMIC ALL-MVC HONOREES
Our program is focused on winning titles and expanding the influence of Saluki Women’s Basketball, and our players are doing their part. We have had 27 players eclipse the 1,000-pont mark; 24 have been inducted into the Saluki Hall of Fame; and 12 have gone on to play professionally.
Success in the classroom and the community is just as important as success on the court. We regularly have one of the best team GPAs in the country, and we’ve started a mentor program for the next generation of powerful, successful women. To help our program grow and thrive, we must depend on passionate investors.
We need private support to fund initiatives that contribute to the program’s success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
