Women's Basketball Picked Seventh in LEC Poll

Nov. 16, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's basketball team has been picked seventh in the 2009-10 Little East Conference pre-season poll.

The Corsairs received 21 points, 13 points ahead of UMass Boston and four points in back of Plymouth State. Keene State was picked to finish first with 58 points.

"It's no surprise we fell close to the bottom of the LEC pre-season poll, as it's based mostly on our 08-09 performance," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Amanda Van Voorhis. "We have a new crop of talent, and I believe we will climb the LEC rankings this year and find our program finishing better than anticipated."

The Corsairs are 0-1 and will return to action when they host the Hampton Inn Classic at the Tripp Athletic Center this weekend.
