    Chicago, Ill. - Early prognostication has the UIC women's volleyball team finishing in a tie for third place in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference this year, according to the MCC preseason head coaches poll released earlier today.

    The Flames were slotted in third along with Butler as each team received one second, two third and three fourth place votes, totaling 22 points. Loyola, the reigning MCC tournament champion, was selected as tops in the league, receiving five first place votes while last year's regular-season winner, UW-Milwaukee, is predicted to take the second spot with two first-place votes. Both the Ramblers and Panthers advanced to last year's NCAA Tournament.

    Behind UIC, Wright State, Cleveland State and UW-Green Bay rounded out the voting in that order.
