EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE Athletics has joined with Prairie Farms Dairy, Inc., to take time each week to honor a Cougar student-athlete who excels both in competition and in the classroom.

This week's honoree is women's basketball player Lauren White. A redshirt junior from Edwardsville, Illinois, White is pursuing a degree in criminal justice and has a grade point average of 3.675.

White has started all 22 games for the Cougars and is second in scoring with 12.6 points per game overall and a team-leading 14.3 points per contest in Ohio Valley Conference games. She has scored double digits in 10 out of her last 11 games.

The team leader in steals with 38, White and the Cougars currently are on a four-game winning streak heading into tonight's matchup at Belmont. The Cougars will return home Saturday to the Vadalabene Center for the annual Pink Zone game that aims to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen Missouri. Game time Saturday against Jacksonville State is 12 p.m.
