The 2017-18 basketball season got started on Wednesday night. Hollins would travel to Winston-Salem to face Salem College in the first of three consecutive road games to kick off the new campaign. With six new faces on the roster, Coach Jenny Logan would get her first look at her young squad against NCAA competition.
The Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) released their 2017-18 Women's Basketball Preseason Poll. The poll was released at the annual ODAC Media Day held at the Salem Civic Center. The league's 12 coaches voted on the poll and Hollins was tabbed to finish 12th.
