MADISON, S.D. – The North Star Athletic Association (NSAA) announced Wednesday its women's basketball pre-season all-conference team and honors.  Six players were named to the preseason all-conference list.  Marcisa McMillan of Mayville State (N.D.) was the coaches' pick for NSAA Women's Basketball Preseason Player-of-the-Year.

McMillian, 6-foot-1-inch senior center from Seattle, Wash., averaged 15.2 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game for the Comets last season.  She shot 63.6 percent from the field (145-for-228) in 2012-13 and helped Mayville State to their first-ever NAIA Division II Women's Basketball National Tournament berth last March.  McMillian was named to NAIA All-American Second Team, Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) All-Conference team and A.I.I. Conference Player-of-the-Year last year.

Joining McMillian on the NSAA women's basketball pre-season all-conference team are:  Kylie Westover of Dakota State (S.D.); Hannah Steele and Carly Jensen of Jamestown (N.D.); Hailey Longtin of Mayville State and Brittany Lehner of Valley City State (N.D.).
