FRISCO, Texas - The Oral Roberts University women’s basketball team was picked 2nd in both Preseason Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Polls, the league office announced this morning. ORU was tabbed behind only league favorite Stephen F. Austin in both the Coaches’ and Sports Information Director’s Polls.

ORU returns two starters and three letter winners from last season’s 18-13 club, which went 15-5 against Southland Conference opponents and won the league’s regular season and tournament championships.

Last week, senior center Sarah Shelton was named to the Preseason All-SLC 2nd Team.

Stephen F. Austin returns all five starters from their 2012-13 club, including Preseason All-SLC 1st Team selection Porsha Roberts. The Ladyjacks went 14-17 (8-10 SLC) last season and were swept by ORU in regular season action.

The Golden Eagles open the 2013-14 season on Friday, November 8 when they host USAO in the annual TTCU Best Field Trip ever game. Tipoff is scheduled for 12 pm CT, with live video available to ELIve subscribers at ORUGoldenEagles.com.
