NSIC Poll: Augustana Women Picked #2, USF #4
Under the leadership of veteran coach Dave Krauth, the Augustana women's basketball team is in the spotlight after being picked second in the 2020-2021 Northern Sun Intercollegiate South Division Coaches' Poll. Minnesota State is the overall number one pick.
The Lady Vikings have returning starters Aislinn Duffy and Hannah Mitby to lead the team. Senior Mitby was picked as Augustana's Preseason Player to Watch. Coming off an early season-ending injury Vishe Rabb returns.
Just a few blocks away the University of Sioux Falls Women's Basketball is set to defend their NSIC South Division title after being picked to finish fourth in the poll.
USF needs to make up for losing seven seniors. Head Coach Travis Traphagen will have returning shooters in senior Anna Goodhope, and juniors Hannah Jones, Kiara James, and Krystal Carlson.
The Coo won it’s first-ever Northern Sun Intercollegiate South Division title and earned a bid in the NCAA DII Central Regional in 2019-20.
