Who’s Back: Guard Zora Stephenson (Sr., 5-10, 10.1 ppg/2.1 rpg);  Jenifer Rhodes (So., 6-0, 9.4 ppg/5.3 rpg, 2014 SoCon Freshman of the Year); Guard/Forward Sam Coffer (Sr., 6-1, 8.4 ppg/6.3 rpg); Guard Lauren Brown (So., 5-9, 8.1 ppg, SoCon All-Freshman Team)

Who’s New: Guard Essence Baucom (So., 5-5, transfer from UAB), Guard Emily Sasser (Fr., 5-11); Guard Shay Burnett, (Fr., 5-9)

Where They’re Picked: Sixth

Phoenix in a Nutshell: It’s the first year in the league for Elon so unfamiliarity will be a factor. However, fourth-year head coach Charlotte Smith has four starters back and the majority of her offense intact. They are also tough at home, going 33-10 over the last three seasons.

Coach Smith Fun Fact: Her No. 23 jersey is hanging from the rafters in Chapel Hill. Get to know more about Coach Smith by watching her exclusive 1-on-1 interview with Bobby Broyles.
