MINOT, N.D. - The Northern Sun coaches picked the U-Mary Women's Basketball team 3rd-in the North Division and 9th-overall in their pre-season poll.
Gabbie Bohl is the Marauders Player of Watch. She was the Freshman of the Year in the conference last season. U-Mary feels is got better at guard with the transfer of Century's Jordan Jossart and a pair of freshman recruits.
"We really thing we improved our perimeter position and as a lot of you will remember we're pretty strong in the post with Lauren Rotunda, Gabbie Bohl and Cassie Askvig. We've got a good group in that front court that's back so we had a goal to get better in the backcourt and we thought we did that with this recruiting class," said Rick Neumann, U-Mary head coach.
The U-Mary Women play the Jamestown Jimmies this Saturday. The Marauders first conference game is Nov. 25.
