The Saluki women's basketball team huddles up before entering the court.

Three players on the SIU women's basketball team have earned spots on the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Teams.

The regular season MVC champions named to the team are Makenzie Silvey and Abby Brockmeyer on the first team and Gabby Walker on the second team.

Silvey holds a 3.75 GPA as a Master's of Business Administration student.

Brockmeyer has a 3.857 GPA as an Accounting Master's student.

Walker holds a 3.5 GPA as a Biochemistry Master's student.

SIU's three honorees on the First and Second teams are the most of any Valley school. SIU has had at least one MVC Scholar-Athlete honoree in each of head coach Cindy Stein's nine seasons as head coach.

The top seeded Salukis open MVC tournament play Friday at noon against either Indiana State or Evansville.
