         EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. -- The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women's basketball team will look to continue its three-game win streak on the road this week.
         SIUE is coming off its most recent win against Quincy University 80-75. The Cougars shot 70 percent from the field in the second half and were led by Amber Shelton's (Edwardsville) 25 points.
         "We got off to a good start, and that was a big boost to us," said SIUE women's basketball coach Wendy Hedberg.
         Once Quincy started to come back after some late first-half three pointers, the Cougars were focused on containing them in the second half.
         "We mixed it up and in the second half they (Quincy) only went 1-6 from three-point range," said Hedberg.
         Along with Shelton's performance, SIUE had some big contributions from Julianne McMillen (Pana) who had 17 points, Amy Austin (Jeffersonville, Ind.) with 15 points and Allison Fogle (Seminole, Fla.) who added 14 points.
         Austin stepped up big for SIUE in a game where three-point threat Whitney Sykes (Pontoon Beach) was only able to take three shots, said Hedberg.
         "Fogle also contributed for us off the bench and had some huge threes for us. In big games, she looks for the ball and looks to step up," said Hedberg.
         The Cougars will play Drury next at 5:45 p.m. Thursday in Springfield, Mo. The last time two teams faced each other Drury won 66-64 while the Cougars shot 56 percent from the free-throw line.
         "Drury is one of the toughest places to go in and play," said Hedberg.
         After Drury, the Cougars will face Rockhurst the team SIUE defeated to start its current winning streak.
         "They are a good team and are going to be competitive," said Hedberg.
