(WNFL) - U-W Green Bay is the pre-season favorite to win its 16th straight Horizon League women's basketball title.  U-W Milwaukee was predicted to place fifth in a poll of coaches, sports information directors, and media.  Green Bay only has one starter returning from a year ago -- guard Megan Lukan.  She led the team in assists with almost four-and-a-half a game, while scoring just over seven points.  Lukan made the All-Horizon League pre-season first team, along with Angela Rodriguez of Milwaukee.  Rodriguez averaged 13 points a game a season ago.  Panthers' coach Kyle Rechlicz has three starters back, and five of her six top scorers returning.  Breannah Ranger of Green Bay made the all-conference second team.  Coach Kevin Borseth returned to U-W-G-B last year, after five seasons in the Big Ten at Michigan.   The Phoenix went 29-and-3 a year ago.  They were 51-and-1 the past three seasons in conference regular season play.
