Ballard back on LSU women's hoops roster
BATON ROUGE - Head LSU women's basketball coach Nikki Caldwell said star guard Danielle Ballard is back on the roster, in time for the team's game tonight against Vanderbilt.
"We're excited for Danielle to rejoin her teammates on the floor," head coach Nikki Caldwell said. "She has worked extremely hard and is ready for game competition."
Ballard is an All-SEC preseason first-team selection, but was put on suspension for team rules violations by Caldwell on Nov. 5. Further details weren't provided, but she was allowed to continue practicing with the team.
The Lady Tigers are 7-7 on the season without Ballard, one of the worst starts for them in 15 years.
Vanderbilt visits the Maravich Center tonight with tipoff set for 8 p.m., and the game will be nationally televised by the SEC Network.
