INDIANAPOLIS, IND. – Augustana women's basketball ranked 14th in the WBCA Division II Preseason Coaches' Poll released on Tuesday.  The Vikings finished 4th in the final poll last season after making it all the way to the national semifinals before losing to Dowling College.

   Bentley (Mass.) opens the season as the top-ranked team after garnering 18 first-place votes.  Gannon University (Pa.) comes in at No. 2, with Clayton State (Ga.), Nova Southereastern (Fla.), and Emporia State (Kan.) rounding out the top five.

   The Vikings tip off the season on Nov. 16 against Jamestown College at 6 p.m. in the Elmen Center.
