NCAA Basketball: Syracuse Orange Tip Off Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse Orange women’s basketball was selected to finish 10th in the ACC in the league’s preseason conference poll. The poll was voted on by the ACC’s Blue Ribbon Panel, which is made up of the conference’s 15 coaches and an additional 45 selected voters.

In 2021-2022, Syracuse finished 12th in the ACC with a 4-14 record against conference play. In the First Round of last year’s ACC Tournament, the Orange lost to the Clemson Tigers 88-69.

In the first edition of the AP preseason poll, five ACC teams ranked inside the top 25, including three who ranked in the top 10.

Louisville is projected by the Blue Ribbon Panel to finish first in the ACC. Three other teams in the conference received first-place votes.

Here are the results of the ACC preseason poll. (Note: first-place votes are in parenthesis)
