Women's Basketball - Wed, Oct. 10, 2012

Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) women's basketball coaches picked Concordia to capture the conference crown. The Cardinals tallied 138 points with Davenport right behind at 128. In addition to the preseason poll, coaches picked Preseason All-Conference selections.

  

The 2012-13 season looks to be an interesting one. The league has two first-year head coaches and five others with less than three years at the helm. It also sees a nice mix of experienced veterans and young talent.
