By A. Boggs - Basketball must be close when preseason media polls hit the wire - and it must be here with the media's vote on the predicted order of finish in the SEC and their picks for all-conference and player of the year honors being released today.
The Commodores were picked third in the East by the writers covering the league, and junior center A.J. Ogilvy was named to the All-SEC second team. Kentucky was picked to win the SEC Tournament, and Patrick Patterson of Kentucky was the leading vote-getter for Player of the Year honors.
The SEC has the complete release here. SEC Media day is this Thursday in Birmingham, and VU's only exhibition game is November 10 at Memorial Gym against Alabama-Huntsville. There are a few season tickets remaining for the upcoming season, and you can order them online at vucommodores.com or call 615-322-GOLD to pick them up.
