Truman Women Picked To Win The GLVC Central

The Truman Women’s Basketball team was the consensus choice of Great Lakes Valley Conference coaches to win the league’s central division championship in the preseason poll released by the league.

The Bulldogs nabbed all four possible first-place votes as coaches could only vote within their division and could not vote for their own team. Truman posted a 17-5 record and a 14-3 conference mark last season in winning the central division last year, advancing to the championship game of the GLVC postseason tournament and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Midwest regional tournament.

The second place selection was Missouri-St. Louis, followed by Lindenwood, Maryville with seven and Quincy with four. Drury was the unanimous choice in the west while Southern Indiana edged out Lewis to be the pick in the east.
