Women’s basketball ranked preseason #1 in MIAA, #7 nationally
The Emporia State women’s basketball team is currently ranked #1 in the preseason MIAA polls and is #7 in the Women’s D-II Basketball Preseason Top 25. The #1 MIAA ranking likely spawns from the team’s impressive two-time MIAA championship run from the previous two seasons. The Hornets are the only MIAA team to be ranked in the Top 25 national poll. The team is led by returning first-team All-MIAA selection Cassondra Boston, who averaged 14.9 points per game a year ago.
The team is set to open exhibition play against the University of Kansas on Nov. 8 at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence.
