ANNVILLE, Pa. – 
Following an “Elite Eight” appearance in last year’s NCAA Tournament, the FDU-Florham women’s basketball team was selected as the overall favorite in this year’s MAC Freedom Preseason Coaches’ Poll, which was announced on Thursday morning.

The Devils were the unanimous first overall pick, receiving seven first place votes and 49 total points. FDU-Florham finished 12 points higher than DeSales (37) who sits in second.

It is a new look for the Devils, who boasted a senior heavy lineup last season, as they lost five key members from last year’s NCAA Tournament team. However, they brought back WBCA All-American forward Shalette Brown as well as juniors Alyssa McDonough and Rachel Groom.

Head coach Marc Mitchell and the Devils are looking to claim their fourth consecutive MAC Freedom title and will be led by Brown and McDonough, who were dominant in the 2014-15 season, leading the team in scoring. Read More +
