Cardinals selected second in Landmark Conference preseason poll
WASHINGTON – The CUA women’s basketball team has
been selected second in this year’s Landmark Conference
preseason poll, announced on Thursday. The Cardinals earned
75 points in the poll following a year in which they won their most
games since 2005-06 with 19.
CUA returns nearly its entire roster from a season ago, and welcomes in a number of talented newcomers. Head Coach Matt Donohue’s squad reached new heights in 2010-11, earning its first-ever spot in the Landmark Conference Tournament, while advancing to the ECAC championship for the first time.
Reigning champion Juniata was chosen atop the preseason poll with 92 points, followed by CUA (75), Scranton (72) and Moravian (62).
Rounding out the poll were Susquehanna (45), Drew (36), Goucher (24) and Merchant Marine Academy (15).
CUA begins its 2011-12 season on Tuesday, November 15 when the Cardinals host Washington College inside the DuFour Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
