ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   Albany State Lady Rams coach Robert Skinner has been named the SIAC coach of the year.

Skinner led the Lady Rams to a 17-11 record and the #2 seed in this week's SIAC women's tournament.

Lady Rams guard Symone Wilkerson has been named the SIAC Newcomer of the Year and first team all-conference.

Kourtney Alexander made the second team.

The Lady Rams open the SIAC women's tournament on Thursday at 4:00 p.m. against the winner of the Stillman/Clark Atlanta game.

If the Lady Rams play Clark, they will have to beat the Lady Panthers in Clarks' arena.

Stillman swept the Lady Rams in the regular season.

Coach Skinner thinks that may be to his team's advantage if they Lady Rams get a third shot at the Lady Tigers.

Robert Skinner said. "Whoever we face, we just have got to be prepared. whether it is Stillman or Clark Atlanta, you have just got to be prepared. You have got to go in and play your best basketball this time of the year."  

The SIAC basketball tournament runs through Saturday in Atlanta.
