NO. 21 ST. FRANCIS
Location: Alpharetta, Ga.
Preseason Rank: 21
2017-18 record: 26-5
Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: Not Ranked
The Lady Knights are only two seasons removed from a run to the Class A state title and a No. 13 finish in the 2015-16 Super 25, and this could be their best outfit since.
They return four of their top five scorers from last year’s squad that reached the final four of the Class A tournament, including leading scorer Jordan Isaacs (13.1 points) and junior Amirah Abdur-Rahim.
The 6-foot-2 Abdur-Rahim is the younger sister of former NBA All-Star and two-time Georgia Mr. Basketball Shareef Abdur-Rahim, and already holds a litany of offers across the SEC and ACC.
Elsewhere, look for sophomore Mia Moore, senior Kennedy Powell, junior Kennedi Philson and junior Eliza Snyder to be cause a number of problems on the defensive end.
