Bookmark and Share

BROOKINGS, S.D. — The South Dakota State University women's basketball team has been picked to finish second in the Summit League preseason poll, which was released Wednesday.

Defending league regular season champion Oral Roberts (Okla.) received 26 of 30 first-place votes to take the top spot with 438 points in the poll conducted by league coaches, sports information directors and select media. SDSU tallied the other four first-place votes to place second with 393 points. Oakland (Mich.) was third with 336 points, followed by IPFW in fourth with 285 points and North Dakota State fifth with 274.

The bottom half of the conference consists of UMKC (253), Southern Utah and Western Illinois tied for seventh (162), IUPUI (99) and Centenary (La.) 48.

During the 2009-10 season, the Jackrabbits finished the regular season tied with Oakland for second place with a 14-4 mark. SDSU later knocked off top-seeded Oral Roberts in the finals of the Summit League Championship, 79-75 in overtime, to earn its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament.

SDSU guard Kristin Rotert was the lone Jackrabbit player on the preseason all-league team. A senior from Salem, Rotert is the Jackrabbits' top returning scorer after averaging 12.6 points per game during the 209-10 season. She enters her senior campaign with 1,051 points and ranks fourth in career three-pointers with 190.

ORU sophomore Kevi Luper was tabbed to repeat as Summit League Player of the Year.

The Jackrabbits open the season Oct. 31 with an exhibition game against St. Cloud State (Minn.). The regular season begins Nov. 12, when SDSU hosts Utah Valley in the opening round of the Preseason WNIT.
