SCOUTING SAINT LOUIS
The Billikens return four starters and nine letterwinners after finishing the 2011-12 season 11-20 overall. Saint Louis will look to senior guard Courtney Webb and sophomore guard Desirae Ball to provide leadership on the court as they are the team's top returning scorers. Webb averaged 11.4 points per game last season while Ball averaged 9.2. The team welcomes one newcomer in freshman Denisha Womack, who led her high school team in scoring with 17 points per game and was named to the All-Conference first team after her senior season.
