GW women ranked ninth in preseason poll

The GW women’s basketball team was ranked ninth in the nation in a preseason poll released by the Women’s Basketball News Service last week.

The news service also named Noelia Gomez as a preseason All-American.

GW returns all 13 players from last season’s team, which went 20-10 and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The only addition to this year’s squad will be guard Kristeena Alexander, a transfer from George Mason University, who will be eligible to play after the fall semester.
