Mary Baldwin, Piedmont Tabbed as Preseason USA South Women's Basketball Top Picks

The USA South Athletic Conference's women's basketball coaches have released their 2019-20 preseason polls. Each divisional preseason poll only includes votes from coaches within that particular division-only. Head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting.

The 2020 USA South Women's Basketball Tournament will once again be conducted exclusively on campus sites. The top-six seeded teams from each division will advance to the tournament.
