UAA's Burns makes GNAC preseason team

Kylie Burns, the leading scorer for the UAA women’s basketball team last season, was named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s preseason all-conference team Friday.

She was among 15 players named to the team.

Burns, a 5-foot-9 forward, averaged 10.6 points and 7.3 rebounds a game last season. She ranked sixth in the GNAC in rebounding.

Burns, UAA’s only senior, is from Kansas City, Kan. She’ll make a visit to Kansas next month when the Seawolves play a Nov. 1 exhibition game against Kansas State in Manhattan, Kan.
