Myers, Wilson named to A-10 preseason squads

Women’s basketball junior guard Tiana Myers was named to the preseason All-Atlantic 10 third team and redshirt sophomore forward Brooke Wilson was named to the preseason A-10 All-Defensive Team, the conference announced Wednesday.

The conference also released it’s 2010-2011 preseason poll, in which the Colonials are predicted to finish ninth. Voting for the poll is conducted by A-10 coaches. The full preseason poll is listed below.

Myers, who spent much of last season playing point guard instead of her natural position as a shooting guard, led GW in scoring with 12.6 points per game as a sophomore. Her free throw percentage of .768 last season was 12th best in the A-10.

Wilson, a 2010 A-10 All-Rookie Team selection, placed in the top six in the conference in both rebounding and steals last season with 7.9 and 2.1 per game, respectively. Her rebounds per game average was the highest for a GW women’s basketball player since the 1995-1996 season.

The Colonials, who return all five starters from last season’s team, will open their season at the Best Buy Classic in Minneapolis against Coppin State.
