         EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - Alisa Carrillo recored a double-double in her first career start as Southern Illinois University Edwardsville powered past UW-Parkside 62-56 on Saturday afternoon in Great Lakes Valley Conference action at the Vadalabene Center.

Sykes has made a three-pointer in 14 of the 16 contests this season. She is shooting 56.5 percent (13-23) from three-point range in the last three games.
         Jamie Kennedy came off the bench to chip in eight points, and Amber Wisdom had seven points, six rebounds, and five assists.
         The Cougars shot 21 of 29 (72 percent) from the free throw line , while the Rangers were 8 of 12 from the charity stripe. SIUE shot 45 percent (23-59) for the game, and each team committed 18 turnovers.
