The 2011-12 Big Sky Conference Women's Basketball Preseason Polls were recently released.

And while there does seem to be a general consensus on the order in which the 9 Big Sky teams will finish this year, its not as clear cut as you would think.

5 different teams received at least one 1st-place vote, including the Montana Lady Griz, who were picked to finish 2nd and 3rd in the coaches' and media polls, respectively.

Here's the breakdown of teams:
