Sheahin Takes Top Preseason Honors
Nov. 9, 2012
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - After receiving first team preseason honors, senior Katie Sheahin won 2012 Preseason Player of the Year accolades at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference awards show. The televised show on ESPN3 honored Sheahin, as she was selected by the leagues ten coaches for the top preseason honor.
Sheahin earned All-MAAC First Team honors in 2011-12, and the 5-foot-10 guard won her second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year award, recording 3.4 steals per game, 102 in total. The Brookeville, Md., native scored 453 points last season, and has totaled 1,111 career points.
The senior guard recorded a single-season record, playing an average of 37.3 minutes per game, and starting in all 30 games of the season. She led the Greyhound team 13 times in points, and 20 times in steals.
Sheahin and the Greyhounds were picked to finish third in the 2012-13 preseason poll, conducted by the leagues coaches. Loyola received 67 points, just 16 points shy of a second place finish.
With 100 points, the seven-time defending champion Marist College Red Foxes took first in the preseason poll, with a unanimous vote.
Niagara came in one spot above the Greyhounds with 83 points, good enough for a second place.
Loyola returns four of their starters, including Sheahin and Kara Marshall, who earned preseason second team honors.
Marshall put up solid numbers for the Greyhounds in her rookie season. The freshman was named to the 2011-12 MAAC All-Rookie Team, scoring 329 points, the second most of any first-year player in Loyola history. She finished third on the team in scoring, and second among freshman in the MAAC with 11 points per game. She made 81-percent from the free throw line, second in the conference and ninth in the school's single season record.
The Greyhounds open the season in Hartford, Conn., as Loyola returned to the University of Hartford after six years. Tip-off starts at 7 p.m.
