Here are our SUPER SENIOR 25 pre-season picks for 2001-2002 in alphabetical order.  All of these individuals display outstanding skills, and most carry exceptional statistics.  We found this list incredibly difficult to make, and to show you HOW difficult it was, we've included the players who were Just Under the Cut for our list.   These young ladies will be pushing our SUPER SENIOR 25 throughout the season, and don't be surprised if a few of them push their way near the front of the senior basketball class.  We will be updating this list with college choices as they are announced.
