Lamar University forward Dominique Edwards was named to the second team of the Southland Conference’s Preseason All-League team the conference announced Tuesday.

Edwards, a graduate student at Lamar this year, averaged 14.1 points and 8.0 rebounds for Lamar last season, helping the Lady Cardinals earn a share of the Southland Conference regular-season title and a berth in the WNIT.

“Dominique is a deserving choice to be on the all-conference team,” Lamar coach Robin Harmony said. “We’re expecting big things from her this season and look for her to be a leader on and off the court.”
