LOS ANGELES - With nearly three weeks of practice under their belts, the LMU women's basketball team will host a Crimson/Navy intrasquad scrimmage, open to the public, in Gersten Pavilion on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 1 p.m.

Fans looking for a sneak peak at the 2014-15 squad are invited to attend, free of charge. The 14-member roster includes eight returning players and six new faces. The young squad features just two seniors in Emily Ben-Jumbo and Taylor Anderson, and two juniors in Deanna Johnson and Sophie Taylor, though the four appeared in nearly every contest last season, including regular starting rolls by three of them.

Added into the mix are four sophomores, including Leslie Lopez-Wood who set the LMU single-season three-point mark (70) during her rookie campaign, and the six freshmen.



Head Coach Charity Elliott enters her third year at the helm of the program and returns her entire staff from a year ago while also adding former Oregon Ducks standout Nia Jackson as the team's Director of Operations.

Following Sunday's scrimmage, the Lions will play exhibition games on Nov. 3 versus Cal State Dominguez Hills and Nov. 9 versus Bethesda University before officially open the season on the road for the 11th straight year, facing Oklahoma State on Nov. 14 in Stillwater, Okla. LMU makes its Gersten Pavilion debut against Cal Poly on Nov. 21.
