MACON, Ga. - Three Atlantic Sun Women's Basketball Squads collect votes in the Preseason CollegeInsider.com Mid Major Poll as FGCU garners a top-ten ranking in the poll.

The Eagles were selected as the Preseason favorite in the Atlantic Sun Coaches Poll after posting back-to-back undefeated conference seasons. The Blue and Green came in at No. 10 in the first edition of the mid major poll with 411 points.

Stetson and Northern Kentucky received votes in the poll as the Hatters come into the season as defending A-Sun Champions. Stetson faced UCLA in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, while the Norse secured a post-season game in the WBI last year in their first year of reclassifying.

FGCU is returning their top-player in Sarah Hansen, who was selected as the A-Sun Preseason Player of the Year, while the Hatters bring back Sasha Sims who was tabbed the A-Sun Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.

NKU's Kayla Thacker landed on the A-Sun Preseason Team.
