• Jackson State stands to be involved in the first game of the 2017-18 women’s basketball season when it tips off against Milsaps College at 10 a.m. Friday. Grambling State also has an early start to the season with an 11 a.m. contest at Louisiana Tech.

• Alabama State is projected to have more newcomers -- percentage-wise -- than any other team in the nation. Of the 14 listed Lady Hornets, 10 of them are freshmen or transfers. The Lady Hornets have the stiff test of going up against the defending national champion South Carolina Lady Gamecocks, a contest that will see ASU coach Freda Freeman-Jackson coach against her daughter, freshman Gamecock guard Bianca.

• Alabama State and Alabama A&M will open the season on ESPN, as their games against South Carolina and the University of Alabama, respectively, can be seen on WATCHESPN/ESPN3.

• Texas Southern is the preseason favorite to win the SWAC crown by virtue of a vote conducted among the league’s sports information directors and head coaches. However, there’s a reason why the game is played, as the prior four preseason favorites failed to win the SWAC Women’s Tournament. Prairie View (2012-13) is the last team that was picked to win the tournament and went on to accomplish the feat.

• Grambling State guard Shakyla Hill -- the preseason choice for the Player of the Year -- was the only player in the league last season to rank in the top five in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and field goal percentage.
