Baltimore, Md. - The 2004-05 basketball season is less than a month away and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) is kicking things off with its annual "media day" this coming Wednesday, November 3. Media Day commences at 11 a.m. at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y.
Preseason coaches' polls and preseason All-MAAC selections will be announced at the event and each head coach will get his/her opportunity to speak on the upcoming season.
Loyola's women's basketball team expects to get a favorable preseason ranking after advancing to last year's Quarterfinals at the MAAC Tournament. Head Coach Candy Cage is in her fourth season at Evergreen and returns four starters and 11 letterwinners from last season.
The men, under first-year coach Jimmy Patsos, finished last in the conference a year ago, but graduated only one senior and have five new faces on this year's roster.
