NEWS AND NOTES:

• Prairie View A&M led all players with 7 preseason All-SWAC selections.

• Alcorn State’s Taylor Hughes -- the 2017 Player of the Year -- seeks to become the first player in at least a decade to win two Player of the Year honors. Former Jackson State standout Canessa Swanson shared the honors with Texas Southern’s Thomasina Garza in 2015, and won it outright in 2016.

• Defending champion Texas Southern was chosen as the preseason Western Division favorite for the fifth-straight season.

• Two of the best base-thieves in the country will be in action during ULM’s Mardi Gras Classic in the form of Prairie View’s Shelby Williams and Grambling State’s Kenyshae Beasley. Williams, who nabbed a SWAC-best 47 bags, averaged 1.02 steals a game, third-best in the nation. Beasley was the only player ranked in the top 50 nationally in steals per game to swipe at leats 30 bases without being caught.

• Arkansas-Pine Bluff led the nation in triples per game last season (0.45)

• Prairie View, Texas Southern, Southern and Alcorn State are the only teams who do not open the season this weekend.
