12_MBB_LittleTyreceBIG

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba was picked eighth by the South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball coaches in the 2013-14 preseason poll.  The Catawba placed a pair of players, Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) and Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) on the preseason All-SAC teams.  It was announced by the league office on Wednesday.

Little was tabbed on the preseason first team after being a second team All-SAC selection a year ago.  The junior ranked sixth in the league with a 16.1 scoring average and stood third in rebounds at 9.1 a contest.  Little led the league with 63 blocked shots.

Edwards was a member of the SAC All-Freshman team last season.  He was second on the team and 13th in the SAC in scoring at 13.1 a game.  He ranked second in the SAC with 4.4 assists per outing.  Edwards canned 59 three-pointers on the season. 

Defending champion Lincoln Memorial picked up seven of the 12 first place votes to become the preseason favorite.  The Railsplitters, who went 25-6 overall and 15-3 in the SAC in 2012-13, edged out Carson-Newman, who picked up the other five first place votes.

Anderson is third in the SAC preseason poll, followed by 2013 Food Lion SAC Basketball Tournament champion Wingate at No. 4.  Newberry is No. 5 in the poll.  Queens led a group separated by six points to garner the sixth spot in the poll.  They were just ahead of No. 7 Lenoir-Rhyne and No. 8 Catawba.

Completing the poll are Tusculum at No. 9, Coker at No. 10, Brevard at No. 11 and Mars Hill at No. 12.

The 2013-14 SAC men’s basketball regular season officially gets underway on Saturday, Nov. 9.  Catawba opens that day at home against Lees-McRae in the Salisbury Roundball Classic at 8 p.m.
