Shocker! Media Picks UK To Win The SEC In Hoops

In John Calipari’s first year in Lexington, Kentucky won the SEC and reached the Elite Eight.  In his second, his Cats finished third in the SEC (gasp!) and then reached the Final Four.  Last year, his team again won the SEC and then went to win the national championship.

At that rate, UK will win the SEC and the NBA title this season.

So it’s no wonder the media today tabbed Kentucky as the preseason basketball favorite in the SEC.  The voting was done “by a select panel of both SEC and national media members.”

Here are the results of the poll:

 

  School   Total Points   1st Place Votes
  Kentucky   328   17
  Florida   310   5
  Missouri   286   1
  Tennessee   269   1
  Arkansas   226   0
  Alabama   222   0
  Ole Miss   186   0
  Georgia   149   0
  Texas A&M   122   0
  Vanderbilt   120   0
  LSU   116   0
  Auburn   95   0
  S. Carolina   54   0
  Miss. State   37   0

 

The panel also selected the league’s preseason All-SEC teams:

 

First Team All-SEC

BJ Young, G, Arkansas

Kenny Boynton, G, Florida

Nerlens Noel, F, Kentucky

Phil Pressey, G. Missouri

Jarnell Stokes, F, Tennessee

 

Second Team All-SEC

Marshawn Powell, F, Arkansas

Patric Young, C, Florida

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, G, Georgia

Alex Poythress, F, Kentucky

Michael Dixon, G, Missouri

Jeronne Maymon, F, Tennessee

 

The media also selected Missouri’s Pressey as the league’s preseason Player of the Year.

Not bad, first year in the SEC & Mizzou has two players listed.  Our back court was the strength last year-as it was the front court too.
