         Coming off of its first loss of the season, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women's basketball team is ready to get back on track during their Florida road trip.
         The Cougars, who dropped to 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference with a 68-56 loss to Lewis, will face off against Nova Southeastern, Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
         "We struggled offensively and didn't tighten up on defense when we need to," said SIUE women's basketball coach Wendy Hedberg of the Lewis game.
         Bright spots for the Cougars include Whitney Sykes (Pontoon Beach) with 16 points and four assists as well as Amber Shelton (Edwardsville), who had 15 points and two assists.
         Hedberg said the Cougars did a better job in the second half, but it just was not enough. The Cougars coach also expressed some concern about rebounding, adding that the Cougars have been outrebounded in all four GLVC games so far this season.
         "They (Lewis) were a good team, and you have to play good to beat them," Hedberg added.
         The Florida road trip will start off at Nova Southeastern, which is currently 2-4 right now. The trip will finish with a game Monday at 6 p.m. against Southwest Baptist who is currently 6-1 on the season.
