USF women's hoops picked sixth

The USF women's basketball team, led by senior Dominique Carter, is predicted to finish sixth in the eight-team West Coast Conference this season.

In the preseason coaches' poll, the Dons, who finished 10-21 overall and 3-11 in WCC play, garnered 22 points, finishing ahead of Santa Clara (19) and Portland (16). San Diego earned 58 points, including four first-place votes, to edge out defending WCC champion Gonzaga (55 points, three first-place votes). Pepperdine (45 points), Loyola Marymount (44) and St. Mary's round out the top five. Loyola Marymount garned one first-place vote.

Carter is out to make history this season. The guard, who averaged 14.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game, can become just the second player in WCC history to be named first-team all-conference four times. Carter was named one of the top sixreturning players in the WCC by the coaches. The others are Gonzaga's Heather Bowman, Pepperdine teammates Daphanie Kennedy and Teena Wickett and San Diego teammates Amanda Rego and Amber Sprague.

This will be the second season for the Dons under coach Tanya Haave.
