The Horizon League announced Wednesday that the 16 time reigning regular season champion Phoenix is the league's 2014 15 preseason favorite.
It's the seventh straight year the Phoenix has earned the No. 1 ranking in the balloting of coaches, sports information directors and media Comprar Levitra members representing the nine Horizon "Oxandrolone Powder India" teams.
"Right now, it's just a poll of opinions," UWGB coach Kevin Borseth said. "We've got a lot of growth potential, but at this point it's just that it's potential. But, I like our approach so far."
The league released the preseason poll and all league teams on its women's basketball media day. Two of those returning starters guards Kaili Lukan and Tesha Buck were named to the preseason all league second team.
The Phoenix accumulated 229 points Testoviron 250 O Sustanon 250 in the voting process. Wright State, which finished second last season at 12 4 and then upset host UWGB in the Horizon tournament championship, had 219 points with nine first place votes.
Cleveland State picked up the other two first place votes and was projected to jump to third place after finishing fifth last season.
"I expect a lot of our teams in our conference to do extremely well," Borseth said. "We've got a lot of really good talent that's come in. We've got a lot of good coaches in our league. Conference play is going to be very difficult for everybody."
UWGB starts its 16 game Horizon schedule Jan. 7 at Wright State, which returns Kim Demmings. The 5 8 senior guard is the league's Winstrol 6 Week Cycle preseason player of the year after being named its MVP last season.

"We don't have just one, I would say, key player," Lukan said. "We have a really good balance. Any night, anyone can show up and get in double digits. That, I think, is great for our team because if you shut down one person, someone else is going to come and play.".
