Kentucky is the Media's pick to win the Southeastern Conference Basketball Championship.
With all those top recruits who defected from Memphis along with former Tigers head Coach John Calipari...everyone is expecting the Wildcats to have another Banner Year in the Bluegrass state..
Mississippi State gets the Nod to Challenge Kentucky for S.E.C. Supremacy.
The Bulldogs are the pick to win the Leagues' Western Division..
State won the S.E.C. Tournament last year and return the Nations' Leading Shot Blocker in former Brownsville Hawyood County Star Jarvis Varnado in the Middle.
S.E.C. Media Types expect the Rebels of Ole Miss Miss to return healthy this season, and tabs them for the Number-2 spot in the west.
Injuries decimated Ole Miss last season, and forced the quick maturation of Freshman Terrico White of Memphis Craigmont..
White went on to become one of the Top Freshmen in the Nation..
Here's the way the votes break down..
Mississippi State (22) 144
Ole Miss (2) 120
LSU (1) 70
Kentucky (23) 148
Tennessee (2) 117
South Carolina 77
Terrico White, and Varnado are named Pre-Season First Team All-S.E.C.
Ole Miss Guard Chris Warren is named to the second team along with Kentucky Rookie John Wall.
The Wildcats Patrick Patterson is the Pre-Season S.E.C. Player of the Year..
My opinion...they better wait and see what John Wall does because that cat is a game changer.
