(New Orleans) The Dillard University Lady Bleu Devils were recently picked to finish fourth overall while the Talladega College Lady Tornadoes are Gulf Coast Athletic Conference coaches' choice to win the conference crown this season. Talladega received four out of a possible seven first place votes. Talladega won the GCAC regular season title last season and was an at-large selection for the NAIA Division 1 Women's Basketball Championship while the Lady Bleu Devils were ousted in the first round of the GCAC Women's Basketball Tournament for the third straight year.
Last year's GCAC Freshman of the Year, Shaelynn Moore (SO/Houston, Texas), was the lone Lady Bleu Devil to land a spot on the All-GCAC Preseason basketball team. She is joined by Tajanee Wells of Talladega, who was selected as GCAC Preseason Player of the Year, along with Kyeshia Dawkins of Edward Waters, Micah Brooks of Southern University at New Orleans, and Montoria Atkinson of Tougaloo.
The Lady Bleu Devils open up the season on Monday, October 31 as they face Dallas Christian College at 5:00 p.m. in Texas.
