UCSD TRITONS WOMEN’S HOOPS PICKED 1ST IN CCAA

 WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – After winning a fourth consecutive California Collegiate Athletic Association regular season title last season, the seventh-ranked UC San Diego women’s basketball team was once again picked to finish first in the league standings according to the preseason coaches poll that was released by the league office on Wednesday.

UCSD, which finished with an impressive record of 19-3 in CCAA play in 2009-10, received six first place votes and a total of 114 points in the conference poll. The Tritons narrowly beat out Chico State, which garnered four first place votes and 103 points to finish second.

Cal Poly Pomona collected 89 points to finish third, while 2010 CCAA Tournament Champion Humboldt State finished fourth with 87 points and Cal State Monterey Bay totaled 82 to place fifth. Cal State L.A. received the remaining two first place votes and tallied 80 points to come in sixth, with Cal State Dominguez Hills (54), Cal State San Bernardino (49), San Francisco State (41), Sonoma State (39), Cal State Stanislaus (25) and Cal State East Bay (18) finishing seventh through 12th, respectively.

The Tritons were also the top pick in last year’s poll, tallying five first place votes and 110 points.

UCSD finished with an overall record of 25-5 in 2009-10, while winning 19 conference games for the second consecutive season. Despite an opening round loss to host Humboldt State in the CCAA Tournament, the Tritons earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA West Regional in Seattle, where they met up with the Lumberjacks once again. HSU would shock UCSD for the second time in a week, handing the Tritons a season-ending 76-72 defeat in the first round.

Two-time defending CCAA Coach of the Year Charity Elliott returns for her fourth season in 2010-11 and welcomes back two starters and six letterwinners from last year’s squad. Among the returnees are junior guard Chelsea Carlisle, who was named a State Farm Coaches First Team All-American after averaging 17.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists last season, and junior center Lauren Freidenberg, who averaged 5.8 points and 5.8 rebounds and shot better than 51% from the field a year ago.

Ranked No. 7 by Division II Bulletin, the Tritons will take the court for the first time this season on Thursday, November 4 to face San Diego State in an exhibition matchup at Viejas Arena. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. UCSD will also square off with Division I powerhouse Stanford in an exhibition contest on November 9, before opening the regular season at the Disney West Coast Tip Off Classic November 12-14 in Anaheim.
