ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba was selected sixth in the 2017-18 South Atlantic Conference Women's Basketball Preseason Coaches Poll. Terri Rogers was a preseason first team All-SAC pick, while Serena Brown was named to the second team. Wingate garnered seven first-place votes to be tabbed as the preseason favorite to win the league championship.

Brown, a senior point guard, averaged a league-leading 5.4 assists a game a year ago. She chipped in with 10.3 points a contest and averaged four rebounds. Brown connected on 29 three-pointers and shot 85% at the line. She recorded 41 steals.
