Men's Basketball Tabbed Fifth in Preseason SAC Poll

ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- Catawba was picked fifth in the 2015-16 South Atlantic Conference Men’s Basketball preseason coaches' poll.  The Catawba Indians picked up 93 points and were tied with Newberry in the poll released by the conference office on Tuesday.  Sophomore Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) was named to the preseason All-SAC second team.

Morrison was the lone Catawba player on the preseason all-conference teams with KJ Arrington out for the season with an injury.  Morrison was the SAC Freshman of the Year last season and also made the DII Bulletin National All-Freshman team.  He averaged 15.5 points a game last year and pulled down 5.1 rebounds a contest. 

Lincoln Memorial was picked up nine top votes and received 128 points to be the preseason favorite by the poll.  LMU Memorial posted an overall record of 30-3 and 21-1 in South Atlantic Conference play last season. 

The 2015-16 men’s basketball season gets underway on Friday Nov. 13.  Catawba opens the season against Francis Marion in the SAC/PBC Challenge on Nov. 13th at 11:30 am.
