Howard women’s basketball preview

Correction: An earlier version of this preview incorrectly said that the Bison’s 2012 postseason appearance was the team’s first. The team has made the NCAA tournament five times before that.

Last season the Bison qualified for the postseason after finishing as the runner-up in the MEAC tournament title game for a second consecutive time. The NCAA tournament perhaps is within reach for the conference preseason favorite that has back senior guard Saadia Doyle, the MEAC preseason player of the year, and senior guard Tamoria Holmes, who led Howard in scoring last season.
