Coaches Polls:
1. Boston U (8)
2. Vermont (1)
3. Albany
4. Stony Brook
5. New Hampshire
6t. Hartford
6t. UMBC
8. Maine
9. Binghamton

(# of first place votes)

I these rankings are definitely what I expected. I disagreed with them but it’ was expected from the coaches. The only ranking that was a bit shocking was UMBC was tied with Hartford, but hey it’s the preseason and doesn’t matter right now.

First Team All-Conference Team

Marqus Blakely*
Corey Lowe*
John Holland*
Tim Ambrose
Muhammad El-Amin
Joe Zeglinski

* unanimous pick

This is very interesting. Obviously there was a tie and instead of re-voting like last year they just put six players on. In my opinion the tie was Zeglinski and El-Amin. While I agree with the top four on the list I was not completely shocked by El-Amin and Zeglinski on the list. I understand why Will Harris is out and that really speaks to the talent of El-Amin, who held together a very young team last year, and while Zeglinski was hurt last year he is extremely talented and is going to get his points in.
