[BIG EAST: Women]Marquette and Georgetown are picked to finish 1-2 in the revamped Big East Conference women's conference.

The Hoyas swept the individual preseason honors with Daphne Corboz being named Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, Emily Menges being named Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and Emma Newins being named Preseason Goalkeeper of the Year.

It will build around the trio of Corboz, the 2012 Offensive Player of the Year with 12 goals, Menges, a first-team All-Big East selection, and Newins, who set a school record by posting 13 shutouts in goal as a freshman.
