         Following Amber Shelton's (Edwardsville) 37-point performance and team's double overtime win over Southern Indiana, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women's basketball team will finish the regular season at home this week.
         "We weren't shooting the ball well (against Southern Indiana), and we went to Amber as much as we could," said SIUE women's basketball coach Wendy Hedberg.
         Although the Cougars went 1-15 from three-point range, they stuck together to pull off the overtime win. Allison Fogle (Seminole, Fla.) hit a jumper to send the game into the overtime period with USI.
         "It's a big boost for their confidence to know we can go in there and win those close games," said Hedberg. "They gave us everything we wanted, and I give them (USI) a lot of credit."
         The Cougars, 19-6 overall and 12-5 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, will finish the regular season at home against Missouri-Rolla Thursday and Missouri-St. Louis Saturday. Game time is 5:30 p.m. for both contests.
         SIUE defeated Missouri-Rolla and Missouri-St. Louis earlier in the season, but Hedberg is not looking past either team.
         "Rolla is in the same boat as USI. They are close to getting a spot in the GLVC tournament and are fighting for their life," said Hedberg.
         UMSL is struggling this season, but SIUE knows the Miners will be looking for a win.
         "We have a cross-river rivalry with them and nobody likes to lose the last game of the season," said Hedberg.
         The UMSL game is also senior night for the Cougars and will be the last regular season home game for Julianne McMillen (Pana), Jamie Kennedy (Colfax) and Krystal Rosengren (Marseilles).
         Hedberg is looking for the team to finish the regular season with "a lot of intensity," she said.
