Cajun Women’s Basketball Team Picked to Finish Seventh
Being picked to finish in seventh place in the pre-season Sun Belt Conference Women’s Basketball poll might not seem like a big deal.
But, for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns, it’s a sign things are looking up.
After finishing just 3-17 in the league a year ago, the coaches in the league believe the Cajuns’ fortunes are looking up. Sophomore guard Keke Veal was also named to the preseason all-conference second team.
The Cajuns upset North Texas in the first round of the conference tournament in double overtime, before falling to Western Kentucky in a hotly contested game in the quarterfinals.
The Cajuns play their exhibition contest at Earl K. Long gym Wednesday night against Loyola. The regular season begins November 8th against Nebraska-Omaha at the Cajundome.
