Beck Tabbed Preseason All-OVC

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – SIUE's Donshel Beck (St. Louis) has been named to the preseason All-Ohio Valley Conference women's basketball team.

The selection was announced Tuesday at the annual OVC basketball media day in Evansville.

SIUE also was selected to finish second in the 12-team league by a vote of the league coaches and sports information personnel.

Beck, a senior, returns as SIUE's leading scorer and rebounder with 14.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. She needs just eight points to become the 24th player in school history to pass the 1,000-point mark.

"Donshel is one of the toughest competitors in our conference," said SIUE Head Coach Paula Buscher. "She has worked extremely hard on her game over the summer, and I'm looking forward to her having a strong senior year."

SIUE begins the 2017-18 season Nov. 3 with an exhibition game at the Vadalabene Center against UMSL. The opening game of the regular season is Nov. 11 at Nebraska.
