Russell Aiming For Conference Wins

Senior 5'7" guard Ericka Russell is the lone returning starter and leading scorer (11.4 ppg) for the 2011-112 Alabama Women's Basketball Team. Promising sophomore Kaneisha Horn, the other starter, suffered a season ending knee injury prior to fall practice. Opportunities are expected to be filled by returning veterans and an incoming class featuring three junior college transfers and a freshman.

Alabama earned a berth to the WNIT ending an eight year post season drought. Russell is a key figure instrumental in executing the up tempo offensive and defensive schemes employed by Coach Wendell Hudson.
