Head women’s basketball coach Arlon Beadles will put a new look on his team for next season as he signed his eighth player of the off-season this week for SAGU.

Nicole Linen, a 5-9 forward from Howard Community College, has signed a letter of intent to play for the SAGU Lady Baseball Lions.

Last year Linen started at Howard Community College which is a member of the WJCAC, widely regarded as the best junior college league in the USA.

As a senior in high school, Nicole was an All-City El Paso selection at the 4A level.

She averaged 21 points per game and was the Offensive Player of the Year.

Off the court with her Associate Degree in Science from Howard College, Nicole carried a 4.0 GPA, was honored by receiving the Presidential Award for Outstanding Student of the Year award, was a mentor to students and is a candidate for the Lea Plarski Award for sportsmanship, leadership, community service, academic excellence, athletic ability, and involvement in student life.

Linen joins a recruiting class that could be largest and most talented in program history.
