Eight veterans return to the Saint Michael's College women's basketball roster in 2017-18, as the Purple Knights look to continue building this winter after missing last year's Northeast-10 Conference Championship by virtue of a tie-breaker.

Alyssa Breunig out of Trumbull High is a sophomore guard for coach Shannon Kynoch.

In her first season, the 5-foot-10 Breunig averaged four rebounds, three blocks and two steals in her eight games.

Following annual exhibition game at the University of Vermont, Saint Michael's begins regular season on Nov. 11-12 at the University of Bridgeport's Women's Basketball Classic.
