GRAND JUNCTION, Colo - The Mesa State women's basketball team lost the bulk of its scoring from the 2007-2008 squad. The rest of the RMAC took notice, picking the Mavericks to finish fourth in the Western Division (8th overall) in the conference pre-season poll.

But the Mavericks say they are ready to prove people wrong. Head Coach Timi Brown tells 11 Sports that she doesn't put any stock in the pre-season poll, adding that she is more concerned with where the team is at in January and February.

Senior Stephanie Delgado puts a positive spin on the pre-season poll. She says that it gives the Mavericks motivation to prove their opponents wrong.

Mesa State will be put to the test early, playing a tough pre-season schedule. The Mavericks first home games are against Johnson & Wales (Colo.) and Dominican University (Calif.) on November 28 and 29. Conference play begins at home December 12 against Colorado School of Mines.
