The Colonels blew away expectations last year – after winning 10 games in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, Nicholls State got over the .500 mark and then swept through the Southland Tournament, beating the top two seeds (Lamar, Stephen F. Austin) on the way to the program’s first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Senior guard Cassidy Barrios returns; she averaged 17.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, shot 40 percent from 3-point range and led the team in steals and blocks as she earned the conference’s Player of the Year, Tournament MVP and Student-Athlete of the Year. Another key asset to the roster is Tykeria Williams (13.2 ppg, 78 made 3-pointers).
