The UAlbany women's basketball team has been to four consecutive NCAA tournaments, and they are the favorite to win the America East again in 2015-16.

The America East preseason poll came out on Wednesday and the Danes are sitting atop, four points ahead of Maine.

Check out the rest of the poll here:

It should be a great battle in the America East as Maine did defeat the Danes a season ago - and they return all five starters.

The Great Danes return a good cast as well, including Shereesha Richards, who was named to the preseason all-conference team. She is the two-time A-East reigning Player of the Year.

Guard Imani Tate was also named to the preseason all-conference team.

The men's preseason poll comes out today and that figures to be a tight race between UAlbany, Stony Brook, and Vermont. Hartford also has aspirations of ending the Danes three-year run at the top.
