Women's b-ball: Auburn picked third; Bonner selected as SEC preseason player of the year

The SEC preseason media poll is out and Auburn was picked to finish third, with forward DeWanna Bonner a nearly unanimous selection as the preseason player of the year.

"I don’t think there is any question about DeWanna Bonner being chosen as SEC player of the year and first team all-SEC. I think that is a great pick,” Auburn head coach Nell Fortner said. “We are all expecting DeWanna to have a great senior year. She has been a tremendous player her whole career here at Auburn and it will be fun to watch her play this year.”

Here's the voting:
