The Skinny: In their first year under Toyelle Wilson, she’s continued the momentum started by her predecessor, Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper-Dyke. Led by SWAC freshman of the year Soliz, the Lady Panthers overcame a late deficit to beat regular-season champ Southern in the SWAC finals. A shaky offense could be their undoing.
