Harry Perretta has lost his two top scorers from 2013 but the guard tandem of Caroline Coyer and Devon Kane will guide the Lady Wildcats in 2014 as the Conference Coaches tabbed Villanova in 4th place in the Big East Preseason Poll.

Coyer, who was named All-Conference, averaged 7.4 points per game, despite missing 11 games due to a broken hand, while Kane contributed 6.5 points and 2.4 assists an outing.
