Women’s Basketball Ranked 11th in National Poll
The Guilford women’s basketball team is ranked 11th in the 2012-13 Women’s D-III News Preseason Top 25 Poll. The team also was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference’s team to beat by the publication.
Guilford head coach Stephanie Flamini returns 11 letter winners, including four starters, from last year’s 22-7 club that posted Guilford’s best record since 2002.
The Quakers went 16-4 in the conference last year and knocked off the top two seeds in the conference tournament to win their third league title. The team made its third NCAA Division III Tournament appearance and first since 2002.
Among the veterans is junior forward Gabby Oglesby ’14, who earned 2011-12 Fourth Team All-America recognition from Women’s D-III News and was a D3hoops.com First Team All-South honoree.
Gabby collected the conference’s Player of the Year Award and was named Most Outstanding Player of the league tournament. She led the team in scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage and blocked shots.
The Quakers open the season at 7 p.m. Nov. 15 when they host Greensboro College.
