Landmark Conference announces women's hoops poll

WASHINGTON – The Landmark Conference announced the 2010-11 preseason women’s basketball poll on Thursday and the Cardinals were selected fifth with 54 points.  Scranton was picked atop the poll as the Royals garnered 97 points.

CUA returns a large number of contributors from a season ago and also has a strong group of newcomers to add to the mix.  The Cardinals won 12 games last year, including eight on their home floor.

The Cardinals finished in the top-half of the Landmark Conference in scoring offense, field goal percentage defense, three-point field goal percentage, rebounding, blocked shots, assists, assist/turnover ratio, defensive rebounds and made three-pointers. 

CUA also cracked the 70-point plateau nine times, with a season-best of 91 in a win over Trinity College.

Following Scranton in the poll was Moravian with 78 points and Juniata with 71.  Susquehanna came in fourth with 60 points, followed by CUA, Drew, Goucher and Merchant Marine Academy.

CUA has been hard at work at practice for nearly two weeks. The Cardinals will tip off the 2010-11 season on Friday, November 19 when they take on Eastern Mennonoite on the campus of Franklin & Marshall.
