With the college basketball season set to tip off early next month, members of Full Court Press selected their top 25-plus players outside of the six major conferences (ACC, BIG EAST, SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, and Pac 10). McNally was one of the players to receive the honorable mention accolade.

McNally has made has made a huge impression on FGCU women’s basketball since becoming an Eagle in 2006-07, as she currently ranks second all-time in scoring (1,022), second in field goals made (368), second in free throws made (245) and second in rebounding (512). The Howell, Mich. native earned A-Sun All-Academic honors the past two seasons and earned a spot on the 2008-09 All-Atlantic Sun First Team. McNally has played in 97 games, making 87 starts, and should Coach Karl Smekso’s first four-year player at FGCU score 41 points and pull down 114 rebounds this season, she will become the FGCU’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder.

McNally and the Eagles open the 2009-10 season on Friday, Nov. 13, when they host UTEP in a Preseason WNIT first round matchup at 7:05 p.m. inside Alico Arena.
