DURANT — Following a seventh-place finish a season ago, Southeastern’s women’s basketball team has been picked to match that finish in the 2013-14 season according to the Great American Conference preseason poll released on Tuesday.


The poll is voted on by the league’s 11 coaches who rank 10 teams and are unable to vote for themselves.


The Savage Storm are coming off a 10-17 season with an 8-12 mark in league play, but return 12 letterwinners from a season ago and four players who started at least half the team’s games.


Haley Schaefer is the team’s top returning scorer after posting 10.2 points per game a year ago.
