         Following two impressive victories to start its season, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women's basketball team will face Robert Morris College.
         The Cougars will face Robert Morris College, of Springfield, Wednesday at the Vadalabene Center with a tip-off time of 5:30 p.m.
         The Cougars have won their first two regular season games by an average of 34.5 points. Robert Morris enters Wednesday's game with a 5-0 record, but that shouldn't alter SIUE's game plan.
         "We are just focusing on our game and what we can do well rather than focus on the other teams," said SIUE women's basketball coach Wendy Hedberg.
         A few things that the Cougars have been focused on are to keep opponent field goal percentages down and creating turnovers. SIUE had been very successful doing those things in the first two games holding opponents to a .348 field goal parentage while averaging 12.5 less turnovers a game as their opponents.
         Hedberg said that it has been an advantage to play a lot of players in the large victories this season because it helps to the team come together early in the season.
         She is also very pleased with the play of the two Cougar point guards Amy Austin (Jeffersonville, Ind.) and Elyse Morris (Prophetstown). The duo have combined for 25 assists in the first two games.
         During SIUE's first regular season game versus the University of Illinois Springfield Austin had 7 assists with no turnovers. In the team's second regular season game Morris had 9 assists with only one turnover.
         "We are moving the ball up the court with fast tempo but still making good decisions," said Hedberg.
