The Pac-12 announced the Preseason Coaches Poll and All-Conference Team on Wednesday. The Bruins were selected fifth by the league’s skippers, while senior Kelly Reeves was named to the Preseason All-Pac-12 Team.

The Bruins earned 76 points in the poll. Coaches, who weren’t allowed to vote for their own teams, picked Stanford as the league favorite with 10 first-place votes and 120 points. USC received the other two first-place nods and 111 points. Washington was third with 99 points and Oregon was fourth at 91.

Rounding out the Preseason Coaches Poll were Arizona State (6th, 65 pts.), California (7th, 59), Arizona (8th, 52), Utah (9th, 49), Colorado (10th, 30), Washington State (11th, 21) and Oregon State (12th, 19).

The Bruins return four starters and 12 letterwinners from a 2012 team which went 23-8, the program’s 14th-straight season with at least 20 wins, and 14-6 in Pac-12 play, which tied for fourth in the league.

In the first year the Pac-12 has announced a Preseason All-Conference Team, Reeves was one of 14 players to earn the accolade. Reeves is coming off a junior season of 2012 in which she appeared in all 31 matches and was second on the team with 2.53 digs per set and 20 service aces. She had 13 double-figure digs matches and added 1.38 kills per set.

A two-time Pac-12 All-Academic selection, Reeves was named to the All-Pac-12 First Team in 2011.
