The Seward County Community College women's basketball team prepares for the Jayhawk Shootout this weekend in Coffeyville, Kan. The Lady Saints will play on Friday, Dec. 1 at 9 p.m. against Labette Community College (5-3) and on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 1 p.m. against Fort Scott Community College (6-2). The No. 11 Seward County women's basketball team is currently one-of-three teams in the NJCAA Region VI who are still undefeated this season with an 8-0 overall record. In addition, Seward County will bring their 37 game non-conference winning streak with them to the Jayhawk Shootout this weekend.

Seward County has proven to be a balanced team during the early portion of the non-conference schedule. Second year head coach Toby Wynn has used a variety of settings with his team that includes seven players who are averaging at least nine points per game.

The Lady Saints have shot at a high percentage this season with eight of their 11 players shooting at least .435 from the field. Leaders for the Lady Saints this season have been Tegan Cunningham (16.4 ppg.), Ilda Chambe (10.3 rpg.), Chelsea Blackshear (4.3 apg.) and Taushelle Rushing (4.4 spg.).

The opening night will be a rematch of the 2006 NJCAA Region VI Tournament Quarter Finals where the Lady Saints were beaten 62-60, by the Lady Cardinals who were led by Wintonia Hart, who was a 2006 First Team All-American, and now plays at the University of Marshall.

Labette is a completely revamped team this season, returning only three players from 2005-2006. The Lady Cardinals three returning players scored a combined two points in the game last season against Seward County. This season Labette started the season 4-0, with victories over Brown Mackie and three junior varsity programs. The past three games Labette is 0-3 with losses to State Fair C.C. (88-61), Northern Oklahoma-Tonkawa (80-71) and Hutchinson C.C. (55-50).

The Lady Cardinals offense is spread between five players who score in double-figures, including leading scorer, Brittany Brown (16.4 ppg.) and sophomore, Monah Pegorari (10.0 ppg.). Labette will have to be aware of the Lady Saints high-pressure defense as they have recorded 151 turnovers this season. The Lady Saints are currently leading the Region VI in steals averaging 20.7 steals per game.

Fort Scott is coming off a 14-17 overall record in 2005-2006, and this season is starting to make people notice them with a 6-2 record to start the year. The Lady Greyhounds are a team that revolves around sophomore, Keisha Walker. The 5-foot-8-inch returning First Team All-Region VI guard is averaging 18.2 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. Walker returns for her sophomore season after finishing second in the Region VI in scoring as a freshman (22.5 ppg.). Walker signed an official NCAA letter of intent for 2007-08 at Texas Tech University.

The Lady Greyhounds are also led by Tiffany Coppage (16.8 ppg.) and Jazmin Taylor (14.8 ppg.). Fort Scott has picked up impressive wins this season over Southwestern Illinois (89-48) and Jefferson College (77-74).
