    I think an argument could be made for either team to be listed atop the GLVC preseason poll, but Lewis does return Kelliher, Green, Lockett and Hinders, while Drury lost both Heinzler and Harman. I like Diestelkamp and Bernard a ton, and I think Miller is a fantastic coach, but these two being separated by one point and one first-place vote seems about right.

    I don't know if they are a favorite in my mind to win the league, but they will get the services of Kendale McCullum, who was fantastic at Parkside (1st-team all-GLVC, 1st-team all-defensive team), this year after he sat out a season for transferring.

    And with Blaylock returning they may have the best guard tandem in the league.

    Hey, Stein is the 2 time reigning GLVC COY, right??

    I thought it was the men’s pick. But yes somehow he keeps getting coy.

    McCullum is a good player, but he's not as good as the one they lost. Wilson was a stud - top 10 in the league in scoring, #3 in rebounding, and shot a ton of free throws.

    The Lady Panthers easily won their exhibition game today. However, Molly was without her top 2 bigs and the team's youthfulness really showed. They need to get better fast or they may have a rough early season.

    After getting a peek, either in exhibitions or preseason tournaments, at most of the GLVC, I reexamined the outlook for the season. The most underrated team in the GLVC may be Rockhurst. They brought back just about everybody from a ridiculously young team. They made a good showing against DePaul (not a great D1, I know). UIndy is going to be near the top of the conference. It looks like Drury may have been overrated. They had a tough task going out to California and playing some good competition, but seems like they had to win at least one of those games. I would not be surprised if they bounce back, however. USI made a decent showing in their exhibitions, despite their naysayers. They will benefit from subtraction as addition this season. William Jewell has played some tough competition, but they didn't have the travel that Drury had. They should have been able to win one as well. Seems to be a consensus that this is a down year for the GLVC in general.
